About Nate Hoffelder (11580 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."

    Nate, how is that long-overdue review of Kobo Glo HD coming along?

  2. That’s interesting. Maybe you need to give it to someone to do a “guest” review (I believe this was a review unit so it has to be sent back anyway). Hey, the deal with reviews so far as I’m concerned is that sometimes there is just nothing to be said. There are certainly many books that I’ve read that elicit that type of response. If you have nothing to say that adds to a discussion, well then, silence is golden. :>)
