From time to time I discover interesting articles in Google Reader. I mark with a start those articles that I want to read later or store for future re-reading. Since I use Evernote to organize my notes, I was happy when I found that you can setup a simply process to send the starred items in Google Reader to your Evernote account. That is what IFTTT can do for you.

If “an item is starred in Google Reader” then “send it as a new note in Evernote”.
You can find a lot of recipes already created in IFTTT, so you may want to take a look at its website.
