Sorting my reading list
The option to sort your reading list is available in either the Feed settings or View settings menu, depending on whether you are viewing items from a single feed or from all your subscriptions.

The Sort by oldest option will display items from the last 30 days, in the order they were posted. This is particularly useful for personal journals and other sites for which the chronological order is important. To go back even further, choose Sort by newest and use our infinite scrolling to go back all the way to the first item we ever tracked for this subscription. When viewing all items, a third option is available, called auto-sort. This works by prioritizing subscriptions with fewer items. So, with this setting, your friend's blog with one item a month will not be drowned out by higher volume sites such as the New York Times because we'll raise the blog to the top.

Full story not showing in expanded view
Google Reader gathers up the information that the content owners and publishers provide. Some sites send out updates with entire stories; others give just a headline or brief summary of the story. If you want to see a story in its entirety, simply click the gray arrow icon and you'll go directly to the source website. You can also contact

the publishers directly and ask that they include the full content in their feed.
