    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. Don’t know how you can patent a thing other people have already done, but they way apple and Google attack the patent office shows that, possibly, you can. I had a book on my ipad a couple years ago that had audio triggers, it was Dracula and horses would whinney and footsteps would fall, all to mimic the things in the story.
