Safari > File > Export Bookmarks (html)
Import after.

If you are backing up all your user folders, just include the user library in the back up and you will have the bookmarks backed up. User Library > Safari.

Of course it may worthwhile to use this to get rid of duds and sort them as well.

Copy that file to a flash drive or something, then put it back after the reformat.
