DS Book Collection allowing you to be nerdier than ever before this Boxing Day

DS Book Collection allowing you to be nerdier than ever before this Boxing Day photo



If you felt that being a hardcore gamer just isn't uncool enough these days (hell, everyone has a DS now), then perhaps you'll be looking to raise  the nerd stakes considerably by acquiring the 100 Classic Book Collection for DS.

Yes, starting from Boxing Day (December 26 to you non-UK chaps), you can get your hands on 100 classic plays and novels, crammed into a single DS cart. By classic, we do of course mean copyright-free. That also means no Harry f*cking Potter ... thank God.

As if you couldn't already guess the central gimmick, the idea is to hold the DS sideways, mimicking a book, and you can flick through pages with the stylus. There are to be search and bookmark functions, and additional literature will be made available in Wi-Fi download form. 

Amazon has the full list of titles included, but for an idea of what you'd be getting into, there will be Shakespeare, Dickens, Bronte, Hardy and Austen, as well as less dreary stuff like Arthur Conan Doyle and Jules Verne.  

For the amount and variety of books that come included, an asking price of £17.99 looks like an amazing deal to me. I must say, this is actually a great idea.
