About Nate Hoffelder (11076 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. Independent bookstores are important insofar as they make the ordering/customer service aspects as painless and hassle free as possible.
    The next thing is to the actually part of the community so sponsoring writing workshops, events like kids reading etc.
    And finally be the neighbourhood publisher of ebooks. Let people come by and publish an ebook that they can give away or sell. The bookstore could even get a very small cut for each sale thereby encouraging a micropublisher
