It's a terrible sign when they can't beat the homebrew counterpart (dslibris). I'll give it a run later, but the pics I've seen confirm what three14 says - it looks ugly, it's formatted poorly (wide ass spacing, huge font). The list of books also includes way too much Shakespeare, which couldn't possibly be helped by the formatting. An embarrassingly pointless exercise. Perhaps it was the prospect of lawsuits that killed it, from making kids myopic. Or the fact that the DSi will do the same thing better, and they're just testing the waters.

20 quid - jeez

apparently what they only half understood is that reading on the DS really work. DSlibris could make things easier as far as converting books, could be slightly more stable and load more of them; but I've used it consistently and it's almost as good as the real thing. This "classic book collection" should have come out long ago, and instead of being a Harper Collins cross-promotion exercise, acted as a frontend for Project Gutenberg in some form. Preloaded of course, but with a wifi network on top (not just "ten more books"). What a waste of real potential.
