From a Surprised E-Book Fan - use your DSiXL

  • Aug 19, 2010
I love my kindle, so I'm not one of those readers who insist on a "real book." However, I was uncertain what I think of this application for the DS. I have the new DSiXL, and I don't think that I'd want it on the standard, but with the bigger screen it works okay.

It tells you how far you've gotten in the book, which is nice (page 150 out of 450 or whatever). There are also several "bookmarks" you can use to mark your place or to mark things you might want to go back to.

One thing that I do like about it, as opposed to the Kindle, is the backlit screen, which makes it nice for nighttime reading if my husband is sleeping.

There's also a fun quiz you can take and the "owl" will suggest a book for you to read, based on the preferences you give it about genre, length, and time period.

My 11-year-old daughter really enjoyed using it to read Alice in Wonderland. There are a few kid-friendly titles, including some fairy tales, but most are for teens to adults. I think that a high school student or college student could use this for required reading.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

This is so cool! I never knew something like this existed for the DS. I don't have the newer version of the handheld console, so I'm not sure the game would work as well for me. Oh well. Neat idea! I'm adding this topic over to Cafe Libri. What a unique and different way to encourage reading! Absolutely love it!
