Reuters
A U.S. appeals court gave Apple Inc a reprieve from an external monitor appointed to oversee its compliance with antitrust laws after the company had been found liable last July for conspiring to raise e-book prices. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York granted Apple a hearing on whether to stop the monitor, Michael Bromwich, from doing his job while the company pursues a formal appeal, which could last several months.

Nearly half of people under 30 read an e-book in past year
io9
Over the past year, the number of people who read an e-book has jumped a lot, especially among twenty-somethings. Interestingly, as you can see in this chart from Pew Research Center, the twenty-somethings lagged behind their 30-49-year-old counterparts, who had read more e-books the year before and maintained a steady appetite for them this past year. The jump this past year seems to have mostly affected people in their twenties and fifties.

The hottest social network these days? Not Facebook — but it's owned by them
Mediabistro
Facebook remains the undisputed king of social networks. If you're sharing your stories or looking for sources, your time is well spent there. But if you want to keep up and catch up with your audience, you can't be only there, especially as the web moves to an ever more visually driven medium. (And no, "But I'm on Twitter, too" isn't enough these days.) A study out this month finds that the clear winner in growth is another Facebook-acquired property is gaining on its photo-sharing corporate cousin: Instagram.

GalleyCat
The majority of authors make less than $1,000 a year, according to a new report from Digital Book World. Almost 80 percent of self-published authors and more than half of traditionally published authors earn less than $1,000 a year, according to the report. A little more than 40 percent of hybrid authors (both traditionally published and self-published) made less than $1,000 a year and not surprisingly 90 percent of the aspiring authors made nothing.

E-book buyers loyal to specific retailers, especially Kindle, iBooks and Nook
Digital Book World

The decline of the American book lover
The Atlantic
The Pew Research Center reported that nearly a quarter of American adults had not read a single book in the past year. As in, they hadn't cracked a paperback, fired up a Kindle, or even hit play on an audiobook while in the car. The number of non-book-readers has nearly tripled since 1978. If you are the sort of person who believes that TV and the Internet have turned American culture into a post-literate scrubland full of cat GIFs and reality TV spinoffs, then this news will probably reinforce your worst suspicions.
