    About Nate Hoffelder (11588 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. From Gear Diary:
      “By not highlighting a single thing that makes the NOOK HD ecosystem special, it comes across like B&N has given up, and are simply begging people to take the inventory off their hands. It reeks of desperation, and that’s a bad sign for the future of the NOOK!”

      I wonder where they got the graphic…some inhouse Nook strategy session? 😉

      Nothing else needs saying, though.
      They’re so desperate to clear out inventory they no longer even think of what the devices are for.
