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. Hi,

    You start to hide your morning coffee from rss. If we want to see your links we have to come to your site. I do not like that and I have to options now. Stop following you or make a robot that will generate an rss stream from your site. In either case I think you loose on the side of what you want to do.

    Why are you doign that exacly?
