About Nate Hoffelder (11481 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."

5 Comments on Daily Brief – 18 October 2015

  1. It’s called Daily Brief now? I liked Morning Coffee.

  2. Why not write when you want, but publish in the morning?
    I also liked the Morning Coffee [and reading it at breakfast]

  3. I don’t think you need to be so literal. I never noticed if it was posted in the morning or not. Besides, if someone wakes up and checks it out, they don’t know either. Morning coffee just seems like a good name. It wakes you up and gets you started.

    But if you insist on being time oriented, perhaps “Evening Glass of Wine.”
