Reception

The game on its first week of sale sold around 21,000 copies. The next week it did much better when 55,000 people purchased the game. It continued to sell well the following weeks and has currently sold 300,000 copies in Europe and Australia combined. The game has not been released in America or Japan, though in Japan a version of the game was released via DSiWare for 500 Nintendo Points.

Very few people reviewed the game due to its debatable stance as a video game. Currently on Gamerankings the game holds an average of %70.20. Eurogamer went as far as to give the game a 4/10. They were the least receptive of the game, stating that the game is not worth the money and the time to boot it up to read a book, and that joining a library is much cheaper as well. Other critics were more positive of the game, with Cubed3 going as far as to give it a 9/10 and Official Nintendo Magazine an 8.1/10.
