5.0 out of 5 stars List of 100 Books June 16, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this "game" yesterday for my 12 year old son. I don't feel I am able to review this with complete accuracy, as I havn't used it yet and can't attest to user friendliness. However, my son was up past midnight last night reading "The Wizard of Oz" and any device that can do that gets five stars in my book. As I am the first review, I will list the books followed by Author. I will admit there are a few here I haven't heard of, but what a steal at 20 bucks!
Little Women-Alcott; Emma, Pride and Predjudice-Austen; Wizard of Oz-Baum; Lorna Doone-Blackmore; Jane Eyre-C.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't wait to read it all June 16, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I saw this on the computer a few weeks ago and couldn't wait for it to come out. My original plan was to buy the DS XL to have more reading area, but my DS Lite shows them just fine until I can afford the upgrade. I wish I could read more than 3-4 sentences at a time on my small screen before turning the "page." It's very user friendly. There's even a quiz to help you pick the age group, genre, author gender, time when it was written, and other criteria that you want. At the end the cute little owl on the screen suggests a book. The bookshelf is very nice, and there are plenty of ways to maneuver around the bookshelf, the menu, and the books themselves.
My only problem so far is that if you're reading, say, The Wizard of Oz, and want to start The Odyssey, it informs you that the bookmark in The Wizard of Oz will be lost. I like to read more than one book at a time, so that isn't good for me. However, I can read summaries of other books without losing my bookmark. The second time I turned on my DS, the first screen the game showed was, "would you like to continue from page 28 in The Wizard of Oz?" and yes or no, which is a great alternative to going through the menu to the bookmarked book. As the other reviewer stated, it's quite a steal at 20 bucks!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a deal! June 20, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first heared of this software through my Nintendo Newsletter. I love to read and as soon as I saw this, I knew I had to have it! I bought it and immediatly started using it. I'm hooked! I just can't get off it! I'm currently reading Sherlock Holmes (which is a great book by the way!). Let me go over some of the features. On the packageing, it will show images of this software being used for the DSi XL. DON'T WORRY!!!! It works just fine on any other model. The bookshelf is where you find the books. You can access it by touching the "Start Reading" button in the Main Menu. You can browse through 100 great classics. In the menu, you will find the options search and sort. Search lets you narrow the books down by using different filters. Sort sorts the books either by Author, Title, or Genre. You can choose a book by going to the "Book Guide" in the Main Menu. You can choose a book by taking the short Quiz or by looking at the ranking by either ratings or desriptions. DS Wireless is another cool feature accessable through the Main Menu. This allows you to do the following: Download new books, exchange books with other 100 Classic Book owners or send a demo version to non-owners. REMEMBER: These features are only accessable with a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection! Lastly, the settings give you the options to assign Background Music varrying from some classic tunes to the load noises of the Airport. You can change the font size and the menu design. It gives you the potions to configure the button settings in "Reading Mode" and change the DS Orientation from Left to Right Handed. This is a great deal and I highly reccomend it to anybody. It's great for the whole family and a steal for $20! To browse the library of books, follow this link[...]

Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As an avid fan of words in general, I decided, upon learning of its existence, to purchase 100 Classic Books for the Nintendo DS.

First things first: all of the books included in the software are now out of copyright, so some people will invariably scoff at the idea of paying actual money for them, particularly since they can be had legally for free on places like [...]. This is certainly a valid point. My feelings on the matter are thus: I like to read, but I am not terribly fond of reading books on the computer. Had I an e-reader such as the Kindle or the Nook, there might be little reason for me to purchase a title such as this. However, decent e-readers are still relatively expensive, and then there's the cost of a cover or case to help protect the thing, and possibly the optional protection plan, etc. Without having used one at any length, I'm not sure whether or not it would be worth it to me to drop the coin required for such a purchase.

Since I already have a DS, making a small purchase like 100 Classic Books is a much easier pill to swallow in order to dip my toe in the waters of e-book reading.

When the title starts up, there is a pleasant and soothing tune playing, as an owl flies across a row of books and settles on the non-touch screen to watch you. The owl also serves another feature. If the thought of choosing what to read from the 100 books available is somewhat daunting, you can ask the owl for a recommendation. He'll ask you a few questions about what you want to read (length, genre, reading level, etc.) and make a suggestion based on your answers.

You can also get recommendations through the online rankings.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was ok
Great concept to have all of these books in one place. Print was a little too small to read. Then I got my Kindle so I didn't need this game. Is a great idea however.

This is a great way to build your classic book library, but not having to worry about lugging books around. I guess this was the put out prior to the kindle catching on.
