Facebook's 'Paper' App: What You Should Know
Mediabistro
By Angela Washeck: Tuesday was Facebook's 10th birthday (feel old yet?), so it's only fitting that the Mark Zuckerberg-led team launched a pretty bold (and, in my opinion), beautiful reincarnation of itself. Universe, meet Paper, the app that's meant to combine your traditional Facebook feed, complete with your friends' photo albums, statuses and check-ins, with news stories from a host of respected, national publications in one experience.

Lawyer Wants Apple to Cough Up $840 Million in E-Books Case
Re/code
Apple lost its e-book antitrust trial last summer, but so far it hasn't had to write any checks as part of its punishment. Now a plaintiff's lawyer wants to deliver a bill: He says Apple should pay $840 million in damages. Steve Berman, an attorney representing consumers and 33 states who linked up with the U.S. government's case against Apple, says Apple's actions caused e-book buyers to spend an extra $280,254,374 after the introduction of Apple's iPad and its iBooks Store.

6 Great Blogs for Indie Authors
Publishers Weekly
All blogs are not created equal — especially when it comes to those about self-publishing. Many are written by authors who are primarily interested in selling their books, others by "experts" who want to sell their services, and then there are those that are so chock full of entertaining stories and down-to-earth, practical advice that you can't afford to miss them, even if they also might happen to suggest you purchase their books or services.

Amazon's Latest Page-Turner: Book Publishing
The Seattle Times
For more than a decade, Hugh Howey wrestled with writing about the horrors of Sept. 11, 2001. Before Howey became the best-selling author of "Wool," he worked as a boat captain aboard a ship docked in the shadows of the World Trade Center towers as two planes flew into them. Even as he began to make a living as an author, the idea of writing about the tragedy vexed him. And then Amazon.com opened a creative door for him.

Can You Make Kids Love Books?
Salon
Cultural critic Natasha Vargas-Cooper recently provoked the indignation of many readers by arguing that it was a bad idea to assign novels to high school students. "Just maybe," she wrote, "the novel is not the best device for transmitting ideas, grand themes, to hormonal, boisterous, easily distracted, immature teenagers." Nonfiction strikes her as a better form "to spark a love of reading, engage a young mind and maybe even teach them how to write in a coherent manner."

Where to Put the Entrepreneur in Publishing?
FutureBook
By Tom Chalmers: It's a word I had never heard of before starting out in business — four syllables that I have apparently become rather than something I aimed for. However, these four syllables are now everywhere — in the press, on TV (see Dragon's Den, The Apprentice, etc. etc.), in books (see autobiographies from those on aforementioned TV shows etc. etc.), and Twitter appears awash with entrepreneurial advice.

Piracy, Savior of the Book Industry
Forbes
Piracy is portrayed as many things by many people. For the content industries, it's portrayed as theft, despite that being legally inaccurate. For a subset of the free culture movement, piracy is just an expression of the adage that "information wants to be free." For many, it's a moral outrage. For some, it's the only practical way they can access content, either because the item is not available any other way, or it costs far more than they can afford.
