About Nate Hoffelder (11371 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. No comment. First time reader and I would just like to subscribe please. I have a book on Smashwords. FIFTEEN BRUSHES WITH LOVE

  2. OverDrive Gets Better & Better – But Is Smashwords Delivering On Its Promises? –

    What a doozy!

    I’m preparing an open letter to OverDrive, and this is perfect!

    I’d begun to wonder if I was just being impatient/paranoid/unreasonable/suspicious 🙂

  3. The lack of content in the RSS feed is distressing, likely going to unsubscribe. I don’t mind feeds that put ads in the feed, but having to click defeats the purpose of using an RSS reader in the first place.

  4. Some interesting update info re OverDrive & Smashwords in the comment section of : OverDrive Gets Better & Better – But Is Smashwords Delivering On Its Promises? (Ebook Bargains UK Blog) – http://ebookbargainsuk.wordpress.com/2014/07/23/overdrive-gets-better-better-but-is-smashwords-delivering-on-its-promises/

  5. Mm, yes, I agree with some other commenters recently: lack of content in the RSS feeds has made them boring and sort of pointless to use an RSS reader. Now the only posting I usually look at is the Morning Coffee, because that’s always a list of off-site links anyway… Oh, well…
