The Morning Coffee – 28 October 2014

In contrast to yesterday's news coverage (which was unintentionally hyper-focussed on Amazon), the reading list is diverse this morning. Be sure to catch the post on authors you wish would resume writing,  11 things you didn't know about ebook buyers, why digital publishers should be included in prize lists, as well as the other posts.

About Nate Hoffelder (11465 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. Boy that Dear Author title has some awkward syntax. “Which authors who have quit writing do you wish would return?”

    I can’t think of anyone who quit/retired I wish would come back, but I do wish Fitzgerald had managed a few more years. And that Gaiman were more prolific with adult work.

  2. I miss David Eddings (& wish his books could be found in ePub). The 11 things you didn’t know about bargain ebook buyers is very accurate.
