I couldn’t believe the news. I rely on Reader on a daily basis. I just signed the petition ichurakov mentioned above, though I don’t know whether it will help.
Matt Guay on Web.AppStorm quickly put together a brilliant article that’s worth checking out: Google Reader is Dead. Here’s What You Need to Replace it.

Most “so-called” alternatives are very limited and laggy.
Thank God for Feedly. Will see pretty soon how their own platform will replace Reader’s.
