Can anyone please recommend an RSS feed reader that you like? I have been using bloglines, but a few days ago they introduced unacceptable changes to the UI, and I'm looking for a replacement.

List of most highlighted passages on Kindle. This leaves me with some observations:

* It's possible that I think it's creepy that Amazon is collecting information about who highlights what in their e-books.

* The BoingBoing post that brought this to my attention indicated that the #1 passage was from Hunger Games, the second from Pride and Prejudice, and then the next several from Hunger games.

* By the time I go to the list, Pride and Prejudice had fallen to #3. The first item that wasn't Hunger Games or Pride and Prejudice was #17.

* MY thinking is that this says more about the Kindle and its users than about the larger popularity and/or significance of particular books. For example, I imaging lots of people are buying the Hunger Games sequels in Kindle format because they are not available in paperback at all.

ROFL! I knew I was being super dense. I was painfully overthinking it. Thanks for being patient with my brainfart.
