About Nate Hoffelder (10619 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. I don’t know much about publishers dealing with the anti-spam law in Canada, but as a Canadian I got way too much spam from May to June trying to get me to opt into emails. The law seemed to cause more spam than it erased!

  2. I really liked the giant cell phone one 🙂 cute!
