There's an ecclectic set of links on the reading list this Thursday morning, including a post arguing that The Doctor is a Mary Sue, the effect anonymity has on feedback from readers, and more.

About Nate Hoffelder (11586 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. Super good historical view and explanation of the business plan functioning of ebook subscription plans.

    Would have been a little better if Scribd & Oyster had been mentioned, and if comments were possible.

    But definitely worth the read.
