    About Nate Hoffelder (11598 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. Thumbs up for the link to the David Gaughran Public Service Announcement.
      It’s not something you’ll see at any of the Mainstream Media or Publishing-focused websites but somebody needs to all out the BPHs on those scams.

    2. Riffle gives us two options only: sign in with Facebook or sign in with Twitter…. 🙁
