About Nate Hoffelder (11222 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. That litreactor piece is so over the top it is hard to tell if it is serious or performance art parody.

    Either way, it’s neither funny nor worth taking seriously.

  2. Must be Friday the 13th: on your front and on this one have had more then 20 warnings about unverifiable certificates, so many that it is very hard to navigate even to leave this site! I don’t want to leave, I want to read! Drat… had to type this in notepad in hopes of having the chance to paste it here.

  3. Saturday the 14th, no warnings at all! Easy to read the site today 🙂
