About Nate Hoffelder (11466 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. “Neuroticals” lol… I think you mean “neurotypicals”. Neurotical sounds a great word though!

  2. The Publishers’ weekly article is interesting: all the hype over Amazon withdrawing from publishing got them to reveal numbers.
    Those are pretty good.
    So much for the “bookstores are essential to discoverability” meme.
    They may not be in Randy Penguin territory but they certainly are one of the bigger independents.
