80s Wednesday

Well, it was Book Week at my daughter's school this week... and I've been writing a lot, plus reading - come on, I love to read. And so, all of this got me thinking and I remembered the Choose Your Own Adventure books I loved as a kid.

You guys remember these, right?

A little from Wiki: Choose Your Own Adventure is a series of children's books first published by Bantam Books from 1979 to 1998 and currently published by Chooseco. Each story is written from a second person point-of-view, with the reader assuming the role of the main character. The books have sold 250 million copies, making it one of the most successful book series of all time.

I read heaps of these books during the 80s. What made each book so much fun was the fact that you started somewhere and then got to pick your own path. How cool is that? Most of the time, I really did stumble along making decisions and hoping for a good ending... but there were a few times when I did peek forward to make sure I'd get to the desired point. He. He.

Anyway, they were fun and cool. Kept me reading for hours and possibly helped me get into the love for books that I have today. Like I always like to say: one can never have enough books! ;)

Happy reading everyone!
