Weekly RoundUp – 17 December 2011

It's been a really fun week here at the blog.On Saturday I posted about the Kindle Touch getting its first hack (which used an mp3 file). Later in the week I brought you news of the Nook Color update, which unfortunately didn't let you install third party apps. And this week I also learned that the best way to use a secret is to share it. On Monday I posted about the Kindle Fire already supporting Kindle Format 8. Hardly anyone read that post, but it did inspire one of my readers to let me have a copy of the tools (thanks, again). And those tools gave me the chance to post a demo file and screenshots on Tuesday. And the rest of the top posts this week are a mix of reviews, hacks, and how-to guides.

About Nate Hoffelder (11467 Articles)
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."
