About Nate Hoffelder (10619 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. It should be noted that the article on the “global ebook report” is from Porter Anderson, writer for hire and spinmeister for tradpub and as such of limited credibility. Read with a cup of salt at hand.

    • I looked at a sample of the “Global Ebook Report”; it is garage and costs 3,500. It source for market data is the company that is selling it, QYResearch, and some of the tables are blank, missing labels or incomplete. This company is Chinese.

  2. That is nice that Albert, Comiskey and Jacobson were inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame this month for creating e-ink.
