The Read it Later is part of the Advanced Blogging extension and is available in Rishi Pro version 1.1.3 and above.
This feature allows your readers to bookmark the posts on your website so that they can revisit or read the bookmarked posts later. The bookmarked posts are saved inside the Bookmark page provided by the extension supporting an easy and quicker access for the readers.
The feature basically removes the hassle of manually storing a post URL for possible future use and offers a well-managed return to the content.
To access this option, you will first need to install and activate the Rishi Pro plugin and then activate the Advanced Blogging extension.
