Your Reader makes your choice of culture not only easier, but more rich as well. As sites update and new posts, so to will your Reader. No longer will you have to remember to check, or have a whole row of tabs in your browser's toolbar to click back and forth from. While you're becoming more informed, you might as well share what interests you with your friends. At the bottom of every post that appears in your Reader, you have the option to "Share." If you so choose to be generous, all of your Google friends who use their Reader will be able to see that post, no matter if they have a subscription to that site or not. It's a chance to rub a little of your cool and savvy on others. Something that doesn't get to happen to often at the lunch table.
Maybe you should use Google Reader. When you do, add this blog to it.
