Each square represent a feed from your Google Reader Subscriptions. Simply scroll horizontally (or mouse wheel) to view all your subscriptions.

To begin reading a feed, simply tap any square and enter the feed view.

Roll over your mouse to start viewing the list of horizontal items from you feed, just click on it to open the item view and view its content. You can star and share the item here as well.
