In my browser, I have folders "articles I want to read", "books I want to read", and "movies I want to see" (not exactly these names). The movies folder typically contains links to IMDB, but could also be a Wikipedia page or anything.

The books, at some moment I download them (the ones I can find) and place them on my reader. That makes them likely to be read at some moment when I am away from the computer, having my reader with me.

The movies, when I have free time, I check my folder, download something and watch it.
