    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. The KKR article has some nice insights into the growth of independent booksellers and the quiet tilling that Kobo is doing in the background.
      Unlike Google, who just signed up the indies and mostly left them to their devices, Kobo is actually helping them sell ebooks.
      (She also gets into the Patterson bailout Ads and his motivations. Very politely and respectfully.)
