Reading frenzy

According to a report by Japanese business publication Nikkei, Nintendo is getting ready to launch an eBook service on its 3DS console.

The service will be limited to Japan initially, and is expected to cover around 300 titles — mainly aimed at children.

There's no word on whether or not a similar approach will be taken in the west, but Nintendo has dabbled in this field before, so who knows?
