About Nate Hoffelder (11593 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. Interesting story about the vending machine in Effingham. Nice to see more libraries trying this sort of thing.

    I’ve driven through Effingham a number of times, as it’s right on the path between Springfield, MO and Indianapolis. Always used to joke that it was named for pizza toppings. “I want pepperoni, and I want sausage, but I don’t want no effing ham!” 🙂

  2. As interesting as the “Digital Natives prefer print books” article is, I think the results are skewed by the fact that kids at that age don’t normally spend the money to purchase these books. For me, the decision to read ebooks depends a lot on price.

  3. That is great read. It looks like Blaster books needs get into peppe books
