Users save articles to their own customized list?

Hello, does anyone know of an extension that allows users of the website to save certain articles they like to their own customized list?
Let's say we have 5 different articles, and a front-end low-level user wants to save articles 2, 3, and 5 to their "account" so they will be able to access them later in their account - and ideally re-organize them (5,2,3 for example) and print or PDF them?
I see there is an eBook extension for Joomla but this looks like a back-end component, not allowing users to do this themselves from the front-end.

Am I totally nuts or is there something like this out there?
Thanks!

you will find the module in the "content" section of the extension directory.......it is a little search but with help of search as "favorite articles" you come very close i think ;)

Thanks leolam, but why so cryptic? I searched for "favorite articles" but am not finding anything that looks right.. which extension are you talking about?

Thanks, but that doesn't look quite like what I'm looking for...
I think maybe leolam was hinting at the MyLinks extension, which looks almost perfect except that it is pretty outdated - it's not SEF-friendly and is not 1.5 compatible, and it doesn't look like it is going to be updated any time soon. It took me a long time just to find a working download link for it, and then when I installed it gave me all kinds of problems.
But basically this is just what I'm looking for - a "user favorites" component that allows registered users of your site to be able to add their favorite articles, etc. to a "basket" to view later or to print/PDF.
Any other thought anyone?
