About Nate Hoffelder (10013 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. Thanks for the link to Troy Hunt’s article on password security. I’ve passed it on to a few pals who love “7777” and similar — and they use the same password everywhere. *rolling my eyes*

  2. 22 Ambassadors Recommend the One Book to Read Before Visiting Their Countries.
    Re Slovenia:
    H.E. Božo Cerar recommends Drago Jan?ar’s 2010 book I Saw Her That Night, which explores the disappearance of a young bourgeois woman from Ljubljana during a turbulent period in history.

    A family friend, whose parents emigrated from Slovenia before World Wat I, made a number of trips to Slovenia/Yugoslavia after World War II. He visited cousins in Ljubljana and other places. Some decades after the end of World War II, he found out that cousins on his mother’s side had been executed during World War II by a man who had married a cousin on his mother’s side. The executioner became a high-ranking apparatchik in Tito’s Yugoslavia.

    Conclusion: while this book may be fiction, that fiction also resonates with history.
