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."

  1. I like these posts, pointing me to some new sites I hadn’t checked out before. Thanks.

  2. I really enjoy the posts. You find interesting things that I would not take the time to go looking for myself. As a new e-book reader and e-book device purchaser, and as a former librarian, you tickle my book fancy with info about e-reading and books and publishing. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  3. Love the Mornimg Coffee. Always at least one article that interests me, usually more.

  4. Yeah, I like the morning coffee. I don’t always read all of the articles, but it’s nice to have a little selection. I read the blog a lot. Today I was intrigued by the Kobo article you pointed to. I have a Kobo Touch. I’m *not* going to update it to the latest version of their firmware because… I don’t like my appliances to advertise at me. I want it to read books that I bought. Carry on.
