    Try going into you phone settings "default applications"

    Then look for "set as default" and tap "Show system apps"

    Now look for "Google reader" open and clear defaults.

    Thanks for all your efforts but this tablet has no obvious "default" location or even a search place!

    ok try this then

    Open Settings on your tablet. Touch Apps, and then touch the More Options menu in the upper right corner. Touch Default appsChoose and touch the category you want to update, and then touch the app you want to make the default.

    Are you able to find the "Google reader" app

    Go to "Reset app preferences"

    When resetting your app preferences, this will resetall disabled apps, notification restrictions, defaultapps, background data restrictions and permissions restrictions. Please Note: You will not lose your existing app data if you reset app preferences.
