About Nate Hoffelder (11477 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."

    The tradpub establishment is truly corrupt when it depends on that kind of predatory behavior.
    Yet dreamers still line up to not only get fleeced but also skinned and tanned, thinking the tradpub universe will nurture and take care of them.

    …the odds are never with you in those games…
