    Well OK, if you just quickly check the dictionary it might seem perfectly fine to translate “My order” to “Meine Bestellung”. And the translation is actually correct. But definitely not in the context of this relatively new feature in Google Reader. Because “Bestellung” means “order” in the sense of ordering something in a restaurant or form a mail-order store.
    Here this word is absolute nonsense. Google should replace it with something like “Reihenfolge”…
