Now that the e-book floodgates are open, there's no stemming the tide. And thanks to the wonders of homebrew, we can move beyond sci fi and onto some heavy-hitting literary classics. One intrepid fellow named Brandon is working to format literature that is in the public domain for use with Moonshell, a homebrew media viewer/player for the DS, and his Moonbooks library already boasts works from Edgar Allen Poe, Thomas Malory, and Dante Alighieri.

The Moonbooks Project also features a heartfelt plea for Nintendo to develop their own plain text viewer, and to capitalize on the capabilities of the DS. We approve -- the DS is great for more than just games.
