About Nate Hoffelder (11480 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."

5 Comments on Morning Coffee – 7 June 2016

  1. Could I request that you post a warning about links that feature autoplay videos, like the CNBC one?

  2. The Friedman piece is excellent.
    And it features two very good comments: one, on the magnitude of what is going on and one on why ISBNs aren’t used on ebooks by Indies.

  3. Godwin’s article on IBT will not allow access unless I turn off my adblocker. Any place else to read it? I’ve had so-called safe sites blocked because my antivirus found suspicious activity via their ads while at the same time they were insisting they were malware free so nope, not gonna happen.
