Thousands of books stored on the XS which children are able to pull over the network either as whole book or bit by bit as they read them on their XO's.#** Status: currently under development#**Additionally, they can "check out" books and bring them home on their laptops to read at home, or while not connected to the XS.#*** Status: currently under development#**This may prove to be more economical than the proposal of distributing text via SDcards as it would allow for a wider range of content per available Gigabyte.
