    A list of stories you'd like to read, but don't have time to do so. When you can't save it to your computer as a favorited page because you may be on a different computer at a different time with more time to read.
    It could be in Subscriptions or a completely new section of My Mibba or something where it would be easy to get to.

    I like it too. I think it'd be very handy.

    Sounds very useful. I have a ton of stories/ chapters bookmarked in my Favorites, so it would be cool to already have them saved here xD

    This sounds like a great idea! I think I'd be handy for those who are just browsing mibba for a second and come across a story they want to read but don't really have the time to save the link somewhere.

    I just subscribe to them and go back later, but I always forget which stories I'm currently reading and which I still need to read.

    Yeah, I think this feature would be a lot like subscriptions. Maybe it would be nice to be able to organize subscriptions into folders (ie "Active" "Want to Read" "Finished Stories"). If you read a lot of stories on Mibba, I can see how keep the titles straight in one big block of subscriptions could be difficult.

    I like that organisation a lot. :)

    I like this idea. Scribophile has a similar feature called "Reading Reminders" that I use very often.

    I like this idea. I think it should be seperate from subscriptions, though, because I don't much like subscribing to a story unless I know I like it first. If I haven't gotten to read any of it, I don't know how much I like it, and I don't want to subscribe to a story just to unsubscribe later because I don't like it. I don't like losing subscribers, I'm sure other authors don't as well.

    ^Agreed. It makes sense for the list to be associated with subscriptions in terms of organization, but I wouldn't want them to be treated the same way – aside from what you said, there's also the fact that it'd be annoying to get emails for updates on a story you're not reading yet.

    I was just thinking about this!

    I'd love for Mibba to have separate folders for our subscriptions, or just the "active/inactive" thing that was on the old Mibba, so I know which stores I've read and which I haven't. (And, this is irrelevant here but, I'd love the option to view our subscriptions in alphabetical order or according to last updated to suit our needs at the time.)

    I think we should have a separate "read later" list, and maybe a "read later" button (kind of like the "watch later" button on youtube?) for any material we want to read later, be it stories, poems, journals, blogs, etc.

    I've been thinking about this kind of idea for a while now! I think it would be very useful for people like myself who want to read more on here but don't always have time. I might become a story hoarder though like my watch later on youtube problem. XD

    You can just subscribe to the stories, there's no need for that.

    I like this idea. Like a lot. I know many stories I found I want to read, but I don't have time. They get lost in my long lists of subscriptions if I just sub and move on.

    @ XXXataktoulaXXX
    I said this a few posts above yours, but some users, like myself, don't like to subscribe to stories they haven't read yet. It doesn't seem very fair to the author, they lose subscribers because of that.
