About Nate Hoffelder (11110 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. I can’t parse that one about how not-easy it is to remove your ebook from Amazon. Because it is; you go into the KDP platform and click “unpublish,” and that puts the title into “draft” form on your KDP bookshelf. I don’t think you can remove it from the KDP bookshelf, but that process does make it so it’s no longer for sale on Amazon. I’ve no idea why they tried to use AuthorCentral.

  2. I didn’t know that either. Thanks!
