It turns out some folks, like Reader-fan Moebius, are enjoying Reader in new ways:

I don't like to use my laptop on my lap, because of heat and other reasons, and I don't like to be pushing the 'J' key very often, so I downloaded "JoyToKey" to use my gamepad for browsing Google Reader. With JoyToKey I mapped "J" to down and "K" to up, "V" to right, and "Ctrl-W" to left. The other joystick was mapped to other normal browser commands. So, I can read Google News very comfortably sitted on my sofa.

Watch out for gamepad thumb and that other RSS.
