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."

  1. Thanks for the link to TeleRead’s Moon+ Reader Pro post, Nate. Moon isn’t perfect but is an excellent illustration of the the possibilities of e-reading software. Shame on Amazon for lagging so badly. I hope people will write [email protected] and tell him to offer more features in Amazon e-reading software (for dedicated devices as well as for cell phones and tablets). If nothing else, Moon+ Reader Pro needs to be in the Amazon App Store for the use of Fire owners. That it isn’t reflects badly on both the store and the Fire line, and as you know from our many upbeat pieces on the $50 Fire, we don’t shy away from praising the hardware itself. Time for the e-reading software to catch up. Just when, for example, will Amazon Kindles and Fire tablets finally give us the font-weight adjust capabilities that Kobo E Ink devices have?
