Is it possible to use Safari's Reading List on my Windows machine and have it synced with the one on my Mac/iOS devices?

According to Apple's support docs, Safari 5.1.1 for Windows will sync the Reading List via iCloud.

Safari 5.1.1 includes support for iCloud, a breakthrough set of free cloud services. iCloud stores your Safari bookmarks and Safari Reading List and automatically pushes them to all your devices.

I believe you would need to have Safari up to date. Then, install the iCloud Windows control panel and configure it to sync Safari content.

Then, enable iCloud on all of your Mac/iOS devices, and you should be good to go.

yes, but iCloud isn't supported for Windows XP :( – user13535 Nov 11 '11 at 16:00
Count yourself lucky, iCloud is not supported on Snow Leopard which came out less than 2 years ago... :-) – Fred Nov 11 '11 at 16:32
Windows XP was released in 2001! (years before Facebook existed and at time when Mac users were using OS 10.1 Puma!!!) Time to move on people... – jahroy Jun 20 '13 at 20:40
