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."

    “12 Books That End Mid-Sentence” are, for the most part, IMHO, twaddle. A few ‘classics,’ and a bunch of mainstream fiction that critics love, but not a single thing I’d care to read. I’d rather read propaganda, or cereal boxes than most of these guys. Seriously, who didn’t see a weird ending coming in a book from Kafka, Delany, Pynchon, or Ellis?
