I couldn’t quite put my finger on exactly what about Google Reader irritated me. Overall, I really like it. It has come a long way since it was first introduced. However, today, it finally dawned on me. Google Reader that doesn’t remove the initial articles in titles of blogs when alphabetizing (Bloglines does). As such, A Wandering Eyre is the first in my list of blogs rather than right after Walt at Random – and the number of blogs beginning with The is rather unwieldy. This is extremely frustrating when I’m specifically looking for the goblin in the library, The Liminal Librarian, The Other Librarian or one of the many other blogs that start with the.
This makes me grouchy!
