Weekly Roundup – 5 October 2011

Here are the top posts from the past week at TDR.The new Nook dominated the news, of course, with the new Nook Tablet and $99 Nook Touch coming as a surprise (to most). The Sony Reader Wifi hack continue to draw a crowd, and it should. I really like mine. It's growing to be my preferred ereader.But some of the important news didn't get the attention it deserved. I wish more had read about the Wiley piracy lawsuits, future of digital comics, and the Gamestop tablets. Two of the 3 are important and the third will have an interesting effect on the tablet market as a whole.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
