“When you go on holiday, or if you’re a commuter, lugging around a big paper book can be a bit of an inconvenience. Now you’ve got this whole library that you’re taking with you. We hope to encourage people to try books that they wouldn’t go out and purchase themselves.” - James Honeywell, Nintendo spokesperson
