Publishers Weekly
E-books sales do not appear to be immune from the impact of bestsellers. According to AAP's monthly StatShot report, adult e-books rose only 4.8 percent in the first six months of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012, hitting $647.7 million. E-book sales in June fell 8.7 percent, to $108.6 million. Earlier this year, Random House acknowledged that its e-book sales in the period fell, due to the strong digital sales of the Fifty Shades trilogy in the first half of 2012.

Author: Illegal downloading is 'moral squalor'
The Guardian
Illegal downloading is a kind of "moral squalor" and theft as much as reaching in to someone's pocket and stealing their wallet is theft, the author Philip Pullman will say this week. In an article for Index on Censorship, Pullman, who is president of the Society of Authors, makes a robust defense of copyright laws. He is withering about internet users who think it is OK to download music or books without paying for them.

Poynter
I spent my vacation reading from pixels instead of paper. I read e-book versions of "Bruce," a Springsteen biography by Peter Ames Carlin, and Dan Brown's bestselling novel "Inferno." Both had great potential for extra audio and video that could have created a much richer experience. But the e-books offered no more than the ink-on-paper versions.
