    About Nate Hoffelder (11579 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."

    1. Like the 10 Words article but for those who take what it says to heart, its i.e. versus e.g. statements are only partially correct and it is not correct to construe i.e. as meaning “in other words”, which has a different meaning from “that is”.
