ebooks come to the Nintendo DS

First Brain Age and now ebooks. The Nintendo DS expands beyond games according to this London timesonline article:

"Nintendo, the Japanese video games company that brought us Donkey Kong and Mario the Plumber, is to announce a deal with the publisher HarperCollins today to make literary classics available to read on its DS portable games consoles.

The 100 Classic Book Collection ranges from Shakespeare and Dickens to Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters. It will cost about £20 and will be available initially only in Britain. "

Now, perhaps the new "Teen" site libraries will encourage reading as well as Wii play dates!
