Critical Linking: April 27, 2014

Amazon has removed the in-app comic book store from the Comixology app, making it a read-only app. Comic book fans will now find themselves in the same position as Kindle fans, who lost the links to a browser-based Kindle Store back in 2011.

Lame, but not surprising.


This is a BFD: Steven Spielberg is directing a big-screen version of Roald Dahl’s children’s novel The BFG.



A collection of more than 20 stories written in Middle English in the 14th Century, they show the best and worst of human nature with a humorous touch.

And the earliest manuscript containing his work has been kept at the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth.

Now the priceless collection has been published online for the first time.

This is why we have the internet.
