I’m a recent fan of the fantastic iPhone app called Instapaper. When you surf the web and find articles that you don’t have time to read, you bookmark them with a little browser bookmarklet. The free iPhone app then loads it all up for you – like your own homemade newspaper.
May I suggest some places to bookmark interesting reads:
