About Nate Hoffelder (9928 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. The story of Google Play and Epub is dated Jan. 31, 2014 – almost three years ago!

    A lot can happen in 2 years and 11 months minus 3 days. What do you get now when you buy an Epub file from Google Play Books?
