 An essential purchase

What a great idea, utilising the DS' potential brilliantly. If they come out with more titles like this it will give the Kindle Reader a run for its money. 100 classic books for less than £20! some really meaty classics too like Moby Dick and Vanity Fair! The collection is arranged like a bookshelf where you can run your finger along the spines as you try and decide what to read next. The layout is good, you can adjust the text size, you can have several bookmarks at the same time. The pages turn in a satisfyingly realistic manner complete with a sound effect. It's a doddle to use. Obviously it's not a replacement for books, but it's fantastic to be able to take your library with you on holiday, on the plane, train or automobile. I hope there are more titles to follow, it would be great to have a children's version with classics like Wind in the Willows, Narnia chronicles etc. The selection of titles on this pak is huge and diverse enough for a first book collection, but as another reviewer said it would be nice to see titles like Dracula and Frankenstein. I totally recommend this to you if you like to read.

 Great for Dyslexics

I am Dyslexic and although I can read very well I find it extremely tiring. So I choose to shun fiction and read non fiction where I can dip in briefly. However, the DS and this collection have opened up a new and enthralling world of reading fiction.
Features and Benefits for dyslexics are:
Short page width : : easy to keep place on page
Ability to change font size : : even easier to keep place
DS ability to alter brightness : : low page glare
Low contrast / sharpness on text : : easy on the dyslexic eye
Auto remembers last page : : dyslexics have memory issues
Electronic book marks : : it remembers it for you

All the above benefit the dyslexic reader greatly. Although I would like to have the ability to alter background colour, but the greyish page is really easy on the eye.

I wish I had access to this technology when I was a kid.

Very highly recommended, Its worth getting a DS for your dyslexic child or relative just for this collection alone.

enjoy!

oh and for you young dyslexics out there dont think you a too disadvantaged, reading may not be our strong point, however, thinking is.

 Fantastic Idea

This is fantastic. 100 Books for under £20.00 what more could you ask for. The only problem is i cant decide which book to read first. I think i will probably start with romeo and juliet, i remember reading and studying this in high school and i loved it. Hopefully like most people have said they will bring out other book collections too. I feel that children now dont read enough and spend too much time on their computers so what did nintendo do? Made this fantastic "game"
