    We had a simulair problem after syncing with the cloud. I was using 2 devices with one itunes account. That made a big mess.

    I'm using 2 devices with one Apple ID, without any mess. My bookmarks are syncing without problems.

    Reboot your iPad. Perhaps that will solve the problem.

    Could you post a screenshot? At the moment I don't know exactly what you meant.

    Where do you tap to see your bookmarks? If you tap the arrow, this appears:

    To view the bookmarks, you have to tap the open book, then this should appear:

    At the bottom of you r 2nd pic it has across the drop down, an open book, Little clock then what looks like a pair of glasses, if I click on the open book there I get just these sites...apple yahoo google Bing Ipad user guide
    If I click on the clock I get the history of where i have browsed, If i click on the pir of glasses I get reading list
    When I save a book mark it should show up under the open book but it vanishes
