Nintendo has announced that 100 Classic Book Collection is to be released for Nintendo DS on December 26.

After eating and drinking way too much on Christmas day what better way to relax than with a good book. How about 100 classic novels all packed into one tiny Nintendo DS cart? That's exactly what Nintendo and Genius Sonority Inc. will be offering Nintendo DS owners on December 26.

100 Classic Book Collection will feature novels from some of the greatest writers in history, including the exciting escapades of the swashbuckling Long John Silver in "Treasure Island", the most famous detective of all time in "the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and true love with Elizabeth Bennet in "Pride and Prejudice".

Holding the DS like a book users can then use the touch screen to easily turn the pages. It will also be possible to adjust the size of the text and a bookmark feature will mean no more dog-eared pages.

The collection will also feature a search function, enabling readers to find novels based on subject matter and length. Additional books will also be made available via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
