How do I edit the items in my "reading list" in Safari? Unlike bookmarks, there doesn't seem to be an "edit" option.

To remove an item, just swipe your finger to left over that particular entry. A red "delete" button will pop up.

You can swipe to the left or the right. This trick will delete items from a list in many applications. – Hand-E-Food Nov 15 '11 at 21:53
Works perfectly as stated. Thank You. – user50866 Jun 8 '13 at 19:39

You need to swipe your finger to the left on the particular one you want to delete. A red Delete button will appear. Tap that button and you should be able to get rid of it.
