Link roundup

1. Jeff Bezos liked the Thursday Next books?

Sometimes Bezos’s creativity gets the better of him. Prakash says the owner suggested a gamelike feature that would allow a [Washington Post] reader who didn’t enjoy an article to pay to remove its vowels. He called it “disemvoweling,” and the concept was to allow another reader to pay to restore the missing letters.
2. "Angered Game Developer Sues Critic Jim Sterling For $10 Million"
Co-founder Robert Romine told me the lawsuit’s been in the works for roughly four months, and that Sterling crossed a line with “continued coverage and harassment of every single title we have ever posted.”
3. Dinosaur Atrocity--excellent toy packaging.
