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. The piece on Amazon’s bookstore is more biased rubbish. And for people outside Australia, the survey of Australian reading habits is highly suspect because of its source alone, the Australia Council, which describes itself as “the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body.” So far as literature is concerned it’s main function seems to be to hand out money to self-proclaimed important author’s to write self-proclaimed important books which generally not many people want to buy. It they told me it was raining I would go outside to check.
