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. I just want to know where I can get that doughnut.

    • It looks like it’s a pretty standard cake donut. I would get them at one of my local supermarkets, but if you have a dunkin donuts nearby that would be a better option. (my local bakeries are marginal)

    • That looks like a Dunkin Donuts glazed sour cream donut (it has that distinctive ‘ridge’ around the top).
