However, for social media managers and businesses alike, this can be quite of a challenge. We obviously can't be online all day, even for those of us who are social media managers or strategists.

E-books responsible for nearly $1 billion growth in trade
Digital Book World
Accounting for $995 million in net new dollars, e-books single-handedly drove trade sales in 2012, according to the first data to come out the AAP and BISG BookStats report at the Making Information Pay conference in New York City. Total U.S. net book sales for the year were $27.1 billion. E-books made up 20 percent of trade publishing net sales in 2012. That's an increase from 2011 when ebooks were only 15 percent of trade net sales.

5 lies unpublished writers tell themselves
Writer's Digest
Writers tend to be creative in many areas of life, so it's no surprise that we can get creative with the truth. Or, as my mother said, "You lie a lot." This is especially tempting when we are debating why we aren't published. Before I was a published author, I embraced a few cherished lies because they blunted the pain of rejection. But the road to publication required discarding these lies and facing reality.

Facebook's best practices for journos: Optimize graph tags, and editorial staff
Mediabistro
When Facebook released their Best Practices guide for media last week, I admit I thought it was cute. In my world, I consider Facebook sort of my "private life," a space I reserve to share thoughts and internet things with people I actually know, whereas I consider Twitter my more public persona, where I follow strangers' opinions. Facebook's advice seemed like they were pointing out the obvious.

10 proofreading tips for self-publishers
Mediashift
If you are self-publishing, then proofreading your manuscript is a really challenging task — and you'll kick yourself if you find a mistake after you've told everyone about the book. No matter how many times you've read through your work, it's amazing how often errors can sneak through to the final stages. The problem: You're so familiar with the text that you see what you think you have written rather than what you actually wrote.

US now paints Apple as 'ringmaster' in lawsuit on e-book price-fixing
The New York Times
The e-mail, from Steve Jobs of Apple to James Murdoch of News Corporation, reads as if one old sport were trying to cajole another into joining a caper: "Throw in with Apple and see if we can all make a go of this to create a real mainstream e-books market at $12.99 and $14.99." According to the Justice Department, that e-mail is part of the evidence that Apple was the "ringmaster" in a price-fixing conspiracy in the market for e-books.

Borders bankruptcy wends on
Publishers Weekly
The Borders bankruptcy is one issue that the book industry may have wanted to put behind it. But although there were less than six months between the mid-February 2011 filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to the liquidation of the remaining stores, the bankruptcy is far from over. Initially the story of the nation's then No. 2 bookseller focused on debt and what it might mean for publishing. Combined, the 20 largest unsecured publishing creditors were owed roughly $241 million.

The curious tale of the stolen books
BBC
A sealed letter that arrived at one of Britain's most historic libraries in February 2011 was to leave its staff stunned. The letter had been written before his death by a former employee of Lambeth Palace Library. Forwarded shortly after he died by the man's solicitor, it revealed the whereabouts of many of the library's precious books. Staff had known since the mid-1970s that dozens of its valuable books had been stolen. But they had no idea of the true extent of the losses.
