Choose Your Own Adventure Books on Kindle

Okay, a bit of an Amazon widget post coming up...
I'm a sucker for all of the little moving pictures - sorry if your browser slows momentarily - we must get better connections, larger screens, faster computers, UPGRADE, CONSUME, LET THE WORLD BURN!!

Ahem, sorry.

This was a new one on me, there's a few solo gamebooks (or "interactive fiction") out on iPhone and for various e-readers, but I hadn't realised how many classic Choose Your Own Adventure titles were available for the Kindle. And by "classic" I really mean "classic" - as in 30 years old and still looking good!

If you like system-less gamebooks and you're finding that Kindle copy of Dan Brown's latest The-Something-Puzzle-ooh-clever-twist-but-nothing-new-Conspiracy novel a bit of a chore to read on the train, why not spice up your commute with a Choose Your Own Adventure book?

^^ Amazon UK pretty widget thing ^^

You've got to love those titles!

If you like the idea of interactive fiction on your Kindle, but prefer your fantasy games to have a meaty dice system (Fighting Fantasy - proper solo game-books!), you would be a fool not to have a look at these:
(on Amazon US)

Well that was fun. :)

May your path be the correct one!

Yours, Billiam B.
