List View Bulk Action: Mark Some as Read
When in List View, I would love to have little check boxes so I can do a bulk action, marking several posts as "Read" at once WITHOUT losing all the other posts. Please?
Bloglines has this feature, but it doesn't have Search (that I've been able to find). You have Search, but no bulk action (unless I want to mark everything as read, which I don't!) If only I could find a reader that had both...
This trick suits me well too! Thank you.

Thank you, homie! The "click in the empty space" trick works wonders. Looks like The Old Reader will win my loyalty :)
I found something that might be interesting for you. This is not exactly what you've described, but I think it will suit your needs. I also think this is not intended, but maybe it won't be removed. If you're in the list view and you click between the green unread indicator and post title, the post will be marked as read but it won't open. The space you have to click on is about 10px wide, so I understand this might not be very comfortable, but it's still something!
I can also advise you using keyboard shortcuts. You can "n" posts and "m" them as read if you think selected post should be marked as read.
