Can I move items in the Reading List like I can in the Bookmarks section?

Can you clarify what you mean by "move"? Are you trying to organize them into folders? –  tubedogg Aug 31 '13 at 16:11

There seems to be no direct way, but I could export them using Google Chrome:

  1. From the Customize and Control Google Chrome menu, choose Bookmarks > Import Bookmarks and Settings.
  2. In that window, select Safari and make sure that the Favorites/Bookmarks option is checked, then click Import.
  3. Now, in Chrome Bookmarks menu, you should find a new folder called Imported from Safari with a subfolder called com.apple.ReadingList that include your Reading List items.
  4. If you want, you can export them using Chrome's Bookmark Manager as usual.
