Google Reader tends in my opinion to be a bit over-eager to mark posts as read - if you click on a post or scroll over the top of it it will be marked as read.

Is there a setting to control the conditions for a post being marked as read?

OK, I can go to Google reader settings->Preferences and uncheck In expanded view, mark items as read when you scroll past them. That makes it slightly less eager.

If you use list view instead of expanded view, posts won't be marked as read until you click to open them.
