It's tempting to try and set it up to read my LJ friends page as well, although I'm not sure how much work that would be. I much prefer the way Reader handles high traffic volumes; I really like having the count tree (I doubt that is the proper term) over on the left for navigation.
RSS feeds and so forth are something I don't understand as well as I would like. Some part of me regards "things that move" on the internet as a suspicious class - this includes streaming media, animated .gifs, and more video content than makes any sort of conscious sense. I think it is the same part of me that gets nostalgic for the pre-graphic, pre-www internet, command-line days.
It's a small part. I'll not be giving up my graphical interface any time soon.
