    Awesome collection of books, but I already either have the actual books or ebooks for a great deal of them. I'll pass, but still a great idea.

    You're better off just using DS Libris or DS Reader.

    There are 10 additional book available to download via wifi.

    Any chance this could eventually be hacked to allow custom books?

    Dude, that's amazing. Really useful for people like me in English studies at uni. Anyway I've read lots of them but may be useful to use for reference. Lots easier to carry around than an anthology. Now the Norton Anth. for DS would make me sooo happy..

    wifi allows people to rank books (so you can see which books other people rank the highest), and you're also supposed to be able to download 10 additional books.

    I think this is a nice little collection. The interface is solid, the selection is pretty good for what it is (heavy emphasis on 18th-19th century English lit), and I think the background sounds are sort of amusing-- who wants to pretend they're in an airport while they read? [​IMG]

    Yes, some of the freeware options are similar, but this is definitely more polished than any of the readers I've seen so far. The only down-side, of course, is that you're stuck with the books they give you.

    Working just right on R4. Coincidentally, I have a bus trip tomorrow in the morning... but I get really motion sickened if I play/read during bus trips, so that won't work out for me. =/
    Wish I could read my just-bought Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the trip as well...

    Nice software.


    (PS: Any chance this could be hacked in order to add another public domain books in it?)

    Probably 6 months max.
