About Nate Hoffelder (11472 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. In this one: 11 Reasons To Switch To An E-Reader Even If You’re Skeptical (Bustle), I’m mildly, temporarily annoyed and want to vent.

    There are two types of readers: those who like e-readers, and those who wouldn’t give up their physical bookshelf if their lives depended on it.

    Does it NEVER occur to anybody on EITHER side of the aisle that some of us like BOTH? For the same reasons? And they’re NOT mutually exclusive, nor is it illegal to do both? I buy books I really love in hardback (if I can) and put them on my bookshelf. My bookshelves are kind of a scrapbook. Why, yes, I DO decorate with books, but only ones that mean something to me. Yes, I DO love the smell of old books. I also love having 1600 books at my fingertips.
