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 thought the DOJ already looked at Amazon and found they hadn’t done anything wrong. And its still hard to get pass how Steve Jobs knew how Amazon’s prices would be the same before they negotiated their new contract?

    Amazon had 90% of the market because they built it. Fictionwise was really the only book store with a good business model before Amazon came in but they were stuck on the old Rocket Ebook reader for a long time. Amazon brought e-ink mainstream, as well as Sony, but Sony’s store was just awful.
