Choose Your Own Adventure book of the week!

Nagsimula ang Choose Your Own Adventure book series noong 1979. First developed and written by Edward packard. Original talaga ang concept dahil ikaw ang main character ng libro at ikaw ang namimili kung ano ang mangyayari sa istoriya. Maraming multiple endings at napaka-sayang basahin mas lalo na pag hindi ka makapag laro sa labas at umuulan. Ito ang hinihiram mo sa library ng school mo, o binibili mo sa Goodwill, Alemars, o sa National Bookstore.

Same here Bean. I went to the library today (here in NYC), and I checked out "Journey Under The Sea"! I was so excited that I really didn't give the book a good look. When I got home, I was very much disappointed! It was the NEW REVISED EDITION! It was horrible! Horrible edits in the writing, and most of all, the art was soooooo BAD! I couldn't believe R.A. Montgomery would allow this! The illustration is one of the coolest things about the series!!!! They call it an UPDATED EDITION. Am going to find me a bookshop here in Nyc where they sell old books, and buy me the REAL DEAL!

Madman101,

Yes, you can definitely find a lot of these books on Ebay, and I've even seen a few sellers sell an almost complete set. I've seen about two that had the complete set, including the Interplanetary Spy and Time Machine adventure books series. Remember those? Will feature those sometime in the future. Which titles did you get? Which was the first one you ever read?
