About Nate Hoffelder (11579 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. Regarding chained books: there’s a Spanish saying: “Tonto el que presta un libro, más tonto el que lo devuelve”(He who loans a book is a fool, and even more so is he who gives it back)

  2. Regarding reading comics on tablets, since all of my tablets have used the 4:3 ratio (instead of the 16:9 ratio on a Fire HD), comics appear pretty much as they do in the paper version. For two-page spreads, I can rotate the tablet to get the entire view at once.
