Someone posted this on the old boards, but it's so awesome I'm re=posting it.

In your Google Reader, click "settings" (upper right corner) and then on the tab that says "Goodies". Then, simply drag the "next" button to your favorites bar. This has alleviated my frustration with blogs that are set to force you to click over to their site to read the entry.

This is what Google says:

Put Reader in a bookmark
The next bookmark is an innovative way to read your subscriptions. It allows you to use Google Reader through just one link - clicking on it takes you to the next unread item, marking it as read in the process. It is particularly useful for subscriptions which only include snippets or when you want to read an article in context.

To use the next bookmark, simply drag the link below to your bookmark bar.

Next ยป <-- drag this to your bookmarks bar

You can also create a next bookmark for a specific tag. To do so, select a tag below and drag the resulting link to your bookmark bar.

Select a tag... EducationFood blogsper 1

Awesome. I've already got one of these buttons up in my bookmark bar, but I haven't used to because I didn't want my non-mofo blogs marked as read. MOFO bookmark here I come!
