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. >>The KU funding pool dropped to $16.8 million in February 2017, a decrease of a million dollars from January. At the same time, the per-page rate increased slightly, to just under half a cent per page (0.49741 cents, to be precise).

    So there were less readers yet authors earned more? That would suggest there were less authors subscribed to KU.

  2. There are less days in February, thus less money needed.

  3. Huh. Germany really gets hit. 34ct isn’t fair.

    I’m taking my book out of KU, only giving new releases those 90 days. With luck, I’ll find new readers trough the Tolino.
