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
Yes, I really want do that, I suppose that I just have feeds that I really need read ;) – gsi-frank Jan 29 '13 at 19:45

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.
