We all remember those “Choose Your Own Adventure” stories where you had to flip around the book every time the character was faced with a decision. I know they’ve fallen out of favor recently, but I think they are right for a reboot. With digital technology and apps, there are a million ways to bring this fun to modern readers.

ChooseYourOwnStory.com is one contender. This charming site allows users to create “story games” and readers to enjoy and review them. While the design is somewhat lacking and the functionality limited, there are plenty of stories to choose from.

And, it goes to show what can be done with MMI, if only we let our dreams take flight.
