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.”

21 July, 2010 // 11 Comments

I stopped by my local Kmart store on Tuesday, and much to my surprise they had The Book in stock. I bought one, and I opened the box before before leaving the parking lot. I have to say I'm rather impressed. It's not perfect, but in the sub $100 price range it's pretty damn good. [Read More ...]
