About Nate Hoffelder (11480 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. Everytime someone even mention “the smell and feel of paper books”, I cringe… Unless you put perfume in it or you recently took it from storage and it has lots of mold, books simply aren’t supposed to smell. And “the feel” should be completely irrelevant, unless you like to caress your paper book. Holding either a paper book or ebook reader is something that only serves a purpose, it’s not an action that you’re supposed to enjoy in itself.
    I understand the emotional attachment to old things, but the “excuses” drive me crazy.
