It would be nice if I could "save for later" or "bookmark" a book I'm interested in when logged in to O'Reilly (or Safari Online). That would be much more convenient than digging through my local bookmarks or leaving oreilly.com for delicious.com.
O'Reilly could even use that data to see which books people are interested in but not quite enough to buy, possibly giving them a deal to entice them to finally do so.

Thanks for writing us about this. oreilly.com does not currently have this feature, but we are hoping to launch wishlists this year, which I hope would give you the functionality you're looking for.
Safari Books Online has an option to add books to your Favorites. When you're viewing a book, you'll see the Add to Favorites button in the upper right corner:
You can find books you've added to your Favorites at http://my.safaribooksonline.com/mysafari:
Safari also has a bookmarking option, which allows you to bookmark specific pages. You can see all your bookmarks here and also view per book bookmarks on that book's page.
Thanks again for writing us.
You can also create a folder on Safari called "Wishlist" or "Future Reading." You can put all the books you'd like to read later in the folder and it will not affect your slot count if you have a Bookshelf account.
Thanks and regards,
Customer Service Manager
