What It Is

While Apple, Barnes & Noble, Sony and Amazon battle each other for domination of the e-reader market with their iPad, Kindle and other devices, Nintendo quietly released a new software cartridge that turns the DS into an e-reader. 100 Classic Books, is a collection of 100 full-length books from authors such as Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Jules Verne, Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen and more.

With the cartridge inserted, flipping the Nintendo DS on its side turns the two screens into two pages, which you turn by swiping the touchscreen or using the control pad. The DS’ screens allow for crisp, bright pages that are easy to read.
