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 found it kind of funny, kid of stupid, but with some good points about what COULD happen in a worst case scenario future if all the bookstores went out of business and other competition went offline.

    But mostly I just imagined WWII Nazi planes bombing Amazon headquarters around the globe and a cheesy but potentially good story of WWIII between an empire and an international business empire…

  2. I thought this was priceless! Someone did an excellent job matching their subtitle text to the action on screen. The hyperbole is laid on so thick, I wasn’t sure if they were mocking Bezos or mocking the Amazon bashers. My one quibble was in the contention that there were no bookstores left to compete with Amazon. Right now indie bookstores are doing OK, at least partly because Borders is gone.
