Instapaper "Read Later" link generation bookmarklet

My friend @3filis brought to my attention this interesting article, Add Read Later buttons to your newsletter on mailchimp blog.

OK, adding Read Later links to my newsletter sounds like a nice feature, but it will also involve a considerable amount of work (my newsletter has numerous links) to create all these extra links.

To make my life easier, I created the following bookmarklet
javascript:var u = window.location.href;var t = document.title; var link=""+encodeURIComponent(u)+"&title="+encodeURIComponent(t); alert(link);

It will pop-up an alert box with the link that adds the current page to Instapaper.
