The Morning Coffee – 7 November 2014

Today's links rang from the preachy (Finish That Book!) to the historical (Laura Ingalls Wilder) to the snobbish (a critique of the Kindle Voyage), and more.

About Nate Hoffelder (11477 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. There is something that rubs me wrong about the Oyster interview. Maybe it was the editing, but it seems that the co-founders are rather naive to the threat both Amazon and Apple have to their business. It’ll be interesting also to see how the public and media handle the situation if Oyster does proceed with providing this “big data” they’re so proud of. Whenever this comes up with Amazon, everyone seems to throw a fit. And of course Amazon is sitting on their high perch smiling enigmatically because when it comes to data on readers, small fish like Oyster really won’t be able to compete. Amazon has the ability (and probably uses it) to collect data on not just reading habits, but also every other area people use their site for.
