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. This morning coffee is a year old? :). Typo – please change year to 2016 in subject line/title.

  2. In re Narnia, I think someone has confused “rebooting” with “recasting.”

    But I guess it’s gotten trendy to say “rebooting” now.

  3. @Christ, while reboot may not make sense to you, reboot has been used for over five years when people are making a movie inspired by an older movie.
