The fact that I already have a nickname renders that side of the argument a little less valid, anyway.

I couldn't find the "What's wrong with this picture" thread, so I'm putting this here.

No-one who owns a DS will want to read those recreationally, much less on a pretty tiny screen?

Only problem I see is that the DS can't store data, so you'd have to read the book you download in one sitting. Some of those stories are pretty enjoyable, and having seen the text size on 100 Classic Books, I can vouch for the readability being just fine.

The Mario series is the best! It has every genre in video games but RTS'! It also has a plumber who does different roles, a princess, and a lot of odd creatures who don't seem to poop!

Clearly none of you can read.

Seriously, look at the words. If you know anything about books it should take like maybe ten seconds to notice.

Nintendo DS players don't want to read books, they want to play games?

Speaking of which, why don't we have a Hamlet videogame... just take The Lion King videogame, replace it with humans, and there you go.

Wasn't paying attention to the titles, since some of the book titles as shown within 100 Classic Books are the same way, with titles on the "books" that you can grab off the shelf with the stylus abbreviated (20,000 Leagues Under The Sea being a good example).

I figured it was because the act of "curling up" with a digital book sounds like something your Twilight-loving girlfriend would do, not you.
Formerly quite reasonable.

The fact there are so many things wrong with that picture that people are having difficulty figuring out what the intended problem is says something. It's like a poorly designed "[dukar] bricks" picture.
