About Nate Hoffelder (10071 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. Good numbers here, thanks!

  2. Have seen similar charts, but this one for me mirrors my experience of reading better: softer, easier on the eye, absorbable – thanks, am sharing!

  3. And, apparently, 100 % of readers who proofread that infographic missed the typos in chapters three and four (and arguably two more in chapter five).

    P.S.: Happy New Year!

  4. I am not criticising you. I just think it is highly ironic, given the subject (especially as the typos are fairly obvious).

  5. Much of what is written is falsely associating correlation with causation. Upper middle class tend to be literate. That doesn’t mean that anyone that is literate is also well off.

  6. I thought it was really interesting how it was setup, and how it was set in a midevil sort of way. I also found it funny (in a good way) that it said that it reduced stress by 700% better than video games.
