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’m still waiting for some other reading apps that support iOS 9 Slide Over/Split Screen, and was hoping Amazon’s first update to Kindle app since iOS 9 came out would have this support: they are usually pretty quick to integrate new iOS features. But I guess we’ll have to wait

    So far only iBooks and Bookshout (with Spritz!) seem to do so. This would be nice for reading + taking notes, having original language and translated text side by side (in two different apps of course), etc.
