Share From Google Reader to Google+

I love Google Reader! I love the format for finding, reading, and sharing news. I also enjoy Google+, but I find that I’d like to discuss Google Reader items more on Google+. Until now, I could not find a way to do so. Frustrated, I decided I’d either find a way or write the extension myself. David Vielmetter has one solution, and you could probably grab the RSS feed of your shared items then push it to Google+, but that would be a series of hacks. I’m currently testing the RSS Share for Google Plus™ and Google Reader™ extension for Chrome, and I think it will do the trick.

Has anyone else figured out a better way?
