A Philosophical Choose Your Own Adventure Book

freewill


Does anyone remember Choose Your Own Adventure books? When I was ten, I loved them. I wouldn't have enjoyed this one then (if it's real), but I would now.

Remember them? I own several, as well as some of the Twist-a-plot knockoffs.

Anastasia -- anytime I can send you some traffic, I will.

Brian -- all I've read is Anselm in the Lair of the Platonist.

I absolutely loved Choose-Your-Own-Adventure and all the series that followed... Grailquest and Swordquest and Endless Quest and Fighting Fantasy and Wizards, Warriors and You and all the rest.

And I want this book. I want it to be real and for it to be sitting on my bookshelf. Very, very cool.

I loved those books. Did you know there's a similar theme on You Tube? There's other new fare, but I will never tire of of Jacuzzi Girl. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5Qn8-w12p0

A crazy idea is going through my head, Jockeystreet.

We could write one.

I didn't know about that one, JohnnyCat, although I've seen similar experiments on YouTube a couple of years ago.
