About Nate Hoffelder (11466 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 fact is that reform will only come with a Congress, White House & SCOTUS NOT dominated by Republicans.

    If you want to protect anything and everything from net neutrality to reasonable copyright laws to clean water & air, don’t vote for the Republican. It is just that simple.
