I kid you not, I used a "Choose Your Own Adventure" in a book report for a middle school English class. It was the greatest scholastic scam of my young life. While most of my classmates read a mini-novel filled with actual plot lines and interesting characters, I had a roughly 100 page book that I easily whittled down to a mere 20 pages. It was beautiful. I completed my report in under an hour and smiled as I ran away with a undeserved "B."
This afternoon, I was reminded of my youthful deed with an email pointing to a great post on AOL/Fanhouse. It features a great "Choose Your Own Adventure" featuring Manny Ramirez. Go here to check it out and be sure to play through it, I think you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
