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. Not only was iBooks missing from the keynote, but pretty soon it’s going to be missing from your homescreen; it’s one of the apps Apple is going to enable people to remove from their devices altogether (and not all the Apple apps are getting that functionality; one is not, for example, going to be able to remove Camera).

    The other thing to consider, though, is that maybe it’s time to stop thinking about digital reading on Apple devices as ebooks and start thinking apps. The App Store got some major attention (and ahead of time, too, which is almost unheard of from Apple), and the ebook apps in the App Store (Device 6, iPoe, Shakespeare, Aesop, Eliot, et al.) are really interesting.
