P.S. I was keeping this under wraps until the sale was finalized, but I just sold The Digital Reader to Johannes Haupt. If you are not familiar with the name, I originally knew him when he published a German-language ereader blog ten years ago. He has since transitioned into being a web media publisher, and owning a bunch of blogs and websites.
Congratulations on the sale! What will it mean for your readers?
