Is there anyway I can access a Google Reader account without entering my main password that could be used to steal access to my other service accounts, like Gmail?

I like to spend my free time reading blogs through Google Reader, but I only have access to public computers that might have keyloggers installed.

If you don't want to set up the 2-step verification for your Google Account (see slhck's answer), you could always create a new Google account just for your Google Reader, and not use any of the other Google-provided services with your "reader account".

You can go to the Google Reader settings, and under the Import/Export tab, export your feeds from your main account and then import the generated OPML file into your reader-only account.
