About Nate Hoffelder (11594 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. The item on the greater popularity of the Paperwhite over the Kindle Voyage is an interesting comment on the adage that there’s no accounting for taste. My wife and I (who both read a lot of e-books) have both found the Voyage well worth the extra cost, owing not only to the page-turn buttons but also its lighter weight. It’s clear that the market as a whole is less taken with it.

  2. The Voyage is not supposed to outsell the PW3 any more than Lexus is supposed to outsell Camry.
    It should hardly be news that it doesn’t.

  3. The New Republic piece is… interesting…
    Sniffy and condescending, it reads like Amazon’s success sticks in their craw. I don’t think ghe writer really wanted to write it. 🙂
