I want be notified from Google Reader via email each time a new item shows up in one of my rss feeds. Is that possible?

Really? You want that much email? If I did that my email alerts would be going off like a pachinko machine, and I only subscribe to a couple dozen feeds. –  Al E. Jan 29 '13 at 15:14

This IFTTT recipe gets you most of the way there. You just need to tag all of the feeds from which you want this email alert with a particular tag. (Since feeds can have multiple tags, you could tag all of them if you want.)

  • Google Reader channel, New item tagged trigger
  • Gmail channel, send an email action

For every new item in Google Reader with a specific tag, sends an email message from your Gmail account to an address you have specified.
