What are lists and how do I create them?

A list is a group of items which are emailed to you in an order that you define. So, if you bookmark some related items in the wrong order, add them to a list. In order to create an ordered list, you must be viewing your reading list. To do so, click "All Items" at the left of the main screen. Find the items you want to add, check them, and then click "Create List". On the next screen, click the items in the order you want to receive them, and click "Save". If you make a mistake, click "All Items" again and start over. An item which is part of a list will display [L] beside its checkbox.

How do I delete a list?

Deleting a list does not delete items from your reading list. It only deletes the ordered list that you previously created. To delete a list, click on the title of an item that is part of the list. A details section will drop down revealing an "Unlist" button. When you click it, a confirmation box will pop up. Confirm the action to remove the list.

Can I select multiple items on my reading list?

The checkbox at the very top of the reading list does 3 things. The first time it is clicked, it will select all read items (this is useful to periodically archive all of the items you have read). The second time, it will select all items. And the third time it is clicked, it will unselect all items. (If there are no read items, the 1st click will select all items.)
