Google Reader Going Away?

TBT here:  I just received a message claiming to be from Google saying that Google Reader will be shut down July 1st and that we can use a link to "Takeout" that will save our reader list in .png or .jpg format to transfer our list.

1.  I am initially suspicious of the claim, as the links are not directly from google.com.  I couldn't find the statement directly on google.com, but it IS listed in Wikipedia as of today.

2.  If it is true, we who use Google Reader have 3 months to switch to a new reader.

3.  What reader do YOU use?  How happy are you with it?  What are the strengths and weaknesses of it?  I ask the last because some strengths and weaknesses may matter to you but not me.



UPDATE:

We found this list of readers...
