I keep a Firefox bookmark folder as a "future reading" list.  When I encounter branching links I don't want to follow right away, I bookmark the link without opening it.  Firefox puts new bookmarks at the end of the folder, so I naturally review them in the order I encountered them.

When I have a nice chunk of time to play catch-up, I open the whole folder of bookmarks in tabs.  When I'm done, the bookmarks either get pruned or placed in a permanent resource folder.
