It looks like Nintendo gamers are going to have something else to do with their consoles. Who wouldda thunk?
From the article
"Nintendo, the Japanese video games company that brought us Donkey Kong and Mario the Plumber, is to announce a deal with the publisher HarperCollins today to make literary classics available to read on its DS portable games consoles.
The 100 Classic Book Collection ranges from Shakespeare and Dickens to Jane Austen and the Brontė sisters. It will cost about £20 and will be available initially only in Britain.
Readers will turn the pages by brushing a finger across the screen. If the collection is a success, Nintendo may expand the range of books available."
