About Nate Hoffelder (10968 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. You have some link problems: no. 3 consistently gives me no. 4 (as does no. 4) and no. 8 gives me a 404 error.

  2. Speaking of swears, here’s a really interesting feature-length article analyzing why it is that swear words are such a powerful taboo. Interesting stuff.
