My sister is 5 years younger and I remember her going crazy for Babysitters Club books and Goosebumps.
Everyone in my grade was crazy about Goosebumps! I stayed clear of them cause I was scared easily, didn't like horror etc. etc.
Until one day I picked one up and realized it wasn't scary - -; but the plots didn't really do it for me - so I never really caught on.

I own a few teen pick-your-own-ending books. Two were just for the heck of it, and two cost 50cents each at my library - I technically bought them for a friend cause I know she'd be soooo happy - -;
The first two are "What if everyone knew your name?" and "What if you broke all the rules"

As a kid I had a Where in the World is Carmen Sandiago book! You'd flip about to try and find her ^^ The set-up was like a pick-your-own-ending book.

Ususally though I'm not really into the sectioned reading, so they usually end up just being kind of tedious for me XD

The 50cent ones were basically books where you end up with a guy. And being a pick-your-own-ending book, they're three different guys you could possibly end up with. I almost vomited in my brain when I saw those pieces of trash XD But having a friend who's completely boy-crazy and loves to read, I kneww I just had to get them XD

Hahaha

I never did chose-your-own-ending books... it would make my brain itch. I'd have to read it front to back anyway. Wink If I want my own ending, I write my own book Cheesy

I had a Carmen SanDiego game! At the dawn of cd-roms for PCs... Tongue I sooo wish I could play it again, but all those old games bug out for me on my new systems, and I somehow never get simulators working. Simulators and technology "made for women to use", never work for me. (Embroidery programs, washing machines... I'm a programmer, I can do servers and I can do games - can't get the simulators or embroidery proggies to work)

I remember in school just LOVING those Pick Your Own Adventure books.  So you follow the story and in certain parts it asks you 2 questions and you pick one and turn to a certain page and continue on with the stories.  So you could read the book a few times and each time it is a diffrent story.

I LOVE CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURES! I would always go back if I didn't like the ending I got. My MIL(she runs the FOL booksale at Sequoya branch- check it out sometime taunya1978!)  gave me a whole bunch of them, I was surprised reading them now that you die a lot in them.....  or maybe I just make really bad choices? I swear there is one that the only ending is to die!
A choose your own adventure totebag would be cool!

I loved the Chronicles of Narnia. Best book series ever. I also read the Babysitters Club and Goosebumps books. I also read the VC Andrews books as well. Those were so addicting! In fact, I have the majority of them in a box in my basement.

Is that the one on Midvale?  Because I pass that branch like 3 times a week.  Dont hurt me.. but I dont even have a Madison Library card.  I just never even thought about getting one.  Because the branches I went to were bleek and I didnt get a curl up and read vibe from there. (Park st. ..eeekk)  Is there a big one downtown?  I might try that one.

I love the "Chronicles of Narnia" books but omnipotent being help you if you say to me, in your compleat ignorance, that "the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" is the first in the series (not that anyone here would think that). ARRGH  Angry. This really ticks me off. Why don't they start the films with "The Magician's Nephew", it has an amazing story line and then "tLtWtW". Although "A Horse and His Boy" is my favorite of all of them. I used to read them sitting next to my mum in her uni lectures when she was doing English lit. They have great memories for me books, thats why I have so many. I cant get rid of something that holds a memory for me.

I tried re-reading the horse and his boy, and was too bored. I don't know why, though, maybe I had sat down to read something else when I did.
I love The Magician's Nephew (in swedish translated to My Uncle The Magician - mind you I was only seven when my mom read it to me first time), but I understand that they don't start films with it. Movies, as a whole, are made for stupid people. I'm not saying stupid people watch them, but they're often made for stupid people. Stupid people wouldn't get the change of main characters like that, for example Roll Eyes Stupid people need more flare than story, and couldn't handle the wicked and or vicious endings of certain books either... Stupid people wouldn't understand the build up for a series such as Narnia Wink
(For example, the ending of Stardust has such a beautifully melancholic point, which they made into the exact opposite in the movie. Wohoo. I did enjoy the movie though.)

I saw the Stardust movie first, and after a few pages, I just treated them like two completely different entities that happened to have the same name. It was easier that way... I got to love them both without being annoyed by the movie.

Also, I agree about movies and stupid people. Look at the Potter movies.
Here's the formula I'm fairly certain they used to make them:
Book-plot/charecter development=pure action
pure action+ CGI= $$$CHA-CHING$$$
That's basically it.

OH and did everyone love the Dudley/Harry hug in the last book? Broke my heart...

Yeah, that was very endearing ^^ I didn't like how drawn out and overly talky "the end" was though, it just felt like a repetition of the same thing for ages and ages. Eventually I just wanted either of them to be blasted so they'd shut up Tongue
