About Nate Hoffelder (11463 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 think it’s funny that FB will start carrying a newsfeed. I’ve long wanted to be able to nix certain people/topics from my google newsfeeds. Just imagine if I could nix “Kardashian” and anything related, certain political names, topics that start with “the top ten – just about anything” and so on.
