    I loved them too, though I can’t remember the details of any I read. Just a vague impression of unlikely journeys to pyramids, jungles and the like. Did you only read the story as you chose it, or did you go back and change your choices so you could read the whole thing?

      I had a terrible system where I would keep my finger on the choice page and then scoot ahead to see what those pages led to. I felt like this wasn’t cheating as I hadn’t actually properly finished turning the page yet… By the end of the book, though, it meant that I’d read all the different versions. I feel like this helped me later in life to be a really good card player 🙂
      Greg The Stop Sign says that the series is back so you’ll be able to give them to your kid. Or maybe write your own! Ooh, that would be cool! Get on to that!

    I read a number of CYOA titles in that picture above. One that stands out is Escape (#20) because it was the first CYOA title that I read. I was attracted to it by the cover art.

    You have to admit that the cool covers of the first 60 or so titles did much to attract readers to them. These original covers were the best. Covers for the subsequent titles and re-issues of the older titles weren’t as cool.
