Choose your own adventure

The low-fi version of video games, Choose Your Own Adventure was the smash hit book concept that delighted and intrigued millions of readers. Between 1979 to 1998 over 250 million copies were sold, and translated in 38 languages. I must my old copy came in very handy during long car trips... I faintly remember a circus plot.

Now that I look back at them I find that there is something creepy about all the covers. It reminds me of a cross between an ugly romance book cover and hideous painting sold at a garage sale. Unfortunately they are still tacky as ever.

You can still buy one...
