    I'm also pretty interested in this as well. Doing the reading out loud sessions on Brain Age got me pretty interested in using my DS as an ebook.

    I don't think there is a PDF viewer for the DS at all.

    There arent any made as of yet.
    PDF on DS sounds a little hard though since it may not be able to display the documents well.
    There would be alot of scaling and it might break the readable image on the screen. So it might jsut be garbled.
    It could be possible though, but I dont think anyones tried to attempt it yet really.

    As for TXT files, there are txt file readers made. Moonshell reads them too.
    But nothing displays it rotated 90 degrees.

    Someone might try taking up the idea though.
    But in the mean time your stuck with whats out there right now.

    As for pdf, I use pdf to image converter. Takes a roughly 20sec to convert around 23 pages to jpg. Then I just open them in moonshell, works pretty well.

    As for viewing txt files from the side. I saw a program that was capable of doing that a while ago. Unfortunely im not able to find the page.. If I do find it again i'll post it.

    What about doing that and then rotating the image?

    it might work, not sure if its readable though.

    I don't see why not. Although the only difference in the end would be how you would hold the ds to view it.
    It's very readable when zoomed in so that's not a problem.
