100 Classic Book Collection (DS)
Advantages: lots of books, loads of reading
Disadvantages: none really for me!
100 Classic Book Collection was released by Nintendo for the DS in late 2008, this isn't really a game, just a collection of 100 classic books ranging from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin to The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wild.
There is a range of different books that have been written and published by a large number of authors including William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Jane Austin, Jack London, Lewis Carol and many more.
To read the books on this so called game cartilage you simply hold your ds up like a book and the text simply appears on the screen so you can read it, you can choose a range of different font sizes if you find reading small font difficult and also you can listen to music in the background while you read your books.
You can search for books by title, author or genre which is handy as it would take a while searching through all 100 books to get the one you wanted. Also while you are reading a book you can save your page so you can return to it at a later date.
Here is a little list of some of the books on this cartilage:
Little Women : Louisa May Alcott
Persuasion: Jane Austen
Jane Eyre: Charlotte Bronte
Wuthering Heights: Emily Bronte
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: Lewis Carroll
A Christmas Carol: Charles Dickens
Oliver Twist: Charles Dickens
Middlemarch: George Eliot
The Scarlet Letter: Nathaniel Hawthorne
Rob Roy: Sir Walter Scott
Hamlet :William Shakespeare
Treasure Island: Robert Louis Stevenson
Adventures of Tom Sawyer: Mark Twain
Around the World in Eighty Days: Jules Verne
Just to name a few, as you can see there is a great range of fantastic books within this cartilage, I haven't read all the books on this yet, though I found this great to take on holidays with me as it was compact and there was lots of choice and more than enough reading to get through on the plane.
I bought this game on Amazon for £10 which was a fantastic price for all the reading I have got out of it soo far. I have yet to see this game in the shops, however I am sure it is available for just a bit over this price.
Overall I think that this is a great way to carry around some reading, there is a great range of stories and they are easily read on the Ds, its really easy to focus on the books on the ds and it isnt that hard to read them as I had initially worried staring at a computer screen would tire my eyes. The range of different books on this game is fantastic and I think that this is a must have for any book lover who likes to read, and especially handy for bus journeys or to bring on holidays.

Summary: none for me!
