About Nate Hoffelder (11579 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. Quite a selection this morning, I’m gonna go munch 🙂

  2. My favorite and, to me, most important – The Limits of “Unlimited”.

    Huge number of links, and all about Interlibrary loans, what libraries can and do offer vs any subscription plan.

    One of the most important reads for understanding where tech & digital really stand in relation to ebooks right now.

    So glad you linked to it Nate, thanks!

  3. From the “pirates” article:
    “be careful to whom you provide free (non DRM) copies to for reviews or other purposes. These are high risk for piracy. “.

    Does she not know that anyone can remove DRM with just a few mouse clicks.
    That DRM does not protect her books from piracy, but only makes it more difficult for her readers to read her books.

    It amazes me that authors are still not better educated about DRM.
