The top-earning authors of 2013
Forbes
1. E.L. James: $95 million
Originally a "Twilight" tribute titled "Master of the Universe," "Fifty Shades of Grey" vaulted its author from fan-fiction websites straight to the top of every best-seller list. The e-book format was a key factor, giving readers an easy way to purchase the sex-filled sequels — and a discreet way to read them in public.

Judge considers limits on Apple's future e-book deals
The New York Times
A federal judge proposed that Apple be required to negotiate future contracts with major publishers separately and at defined intervals as part of its punishment for illegally conspiring to raise the price of e-books. In a sometimes testy hearing in United States District Court in Lower Manhattan, Judge Denise L. Cote said that she was considering a plan in which Apple would negotiate contracts with publishers in a staggered fashion — possibly six to eight months apart — to prevent them from engaging in another price-fixing conspiracy.

Publishers protest DOJ's proposed punishment for Apple
GigaOM
The five publishers who settled with the federal government in the e-book pricing case objected to the government's proposed injunction for Apple in a joint court filing. They argue that the injunction modifies the settlements that they already reached with the government, and does more to punish publishers than to punish Apple. Apple had objected to the proposed injunction.

How big is Amazon's Kindle business?
All Things D
We've already learned not to expect Amazon to divulge Kindle sales numbers, but Morgan Stanley Research is taking a crack at estimating it for us. In a report released last week, Morgan Stanley said it estimates that Amazon will sell $4.5 billion worth of Kindle e-readers and tablets this year, up 26 percent from 2012. Growth will slow next year, when the business will do $5 billion in sales, Morgan Stanley estimates.

The end of the independent bookstore (and a new golden age for books)
The Domino Project
After World War II, a wealthier, better educated country started engaging in more culture, more often, in a more widespread way. We were more likely to watch the same movies, more likely to listen to more music, and much more likely to want to read the books others were reading. Paperback books really came into their own, making reading portable and cheap, and the Book of the Month Club began to dominate.
