You can unsubscribe from feeds in Google Reader via the Feed Management page (see image below), but it's not the most efficient way of managing the feeds.Subscription Management page — tedious to use

Using this method to unsubscribe can be tedious and time-consuming, because you have to leave the page you're on and then scroll down to find the feed you want to unsubscribe from.

Instead, to unsubscribe from feeds in Google Reader:

1. Assuming you're reading feeds from the All Items view, where all feeds are aggregated and sorted only by date, click the post title to expand the view.

click the post

2. Click the name of the feed as it appears next to the word "from."

click the name of the feed

3. Click the Feed settings button and select Unsubscribe.

select unsubscribe from the Feed Settings button

Thanks Reed for the tip.
