Google Reader Search Function

About a year ago I discovered Google Reader and it is saving me so much time! Using Google Reader, I can track all of my favorite blogs on one site! I have it set to show all of the posts I haven't read yet. So, when I visit Google Reader, I can catch up on everyone's blog!

Just a few days ago, I noticed a "search" function on Google Reader. It is so neat! If I remember reading about something on someone's blog, but I don't remember who, I can search "all items" and Google Reader finds the post for me! Or, if I'm working on a new topic and want to see if any of my friends have blogged about it, I can type some key words and hit "search."

For example, I typed in "Tall Tales" this morning and came across several of Ms. Julie's posts. I was also able to find several posts on Blog, She Wrote where she's used some FIAR books. I've requested some of them from the library.

I'm so excited to find this "new" tool!
