Download The Abominable Snowman, free!

For those of you scarcely out of the womb,'Choose Your Own Adventure' was the title of a series of books published by Bantam from 1979 to 1998. It is one of the most successful series of all time, selling over 250 million copies.

Each story was written in the second-person, with the reader playing the role of the main character. The innovative feature was that the reader was given choices of how the story should progress, e.g. "If you want to enter the room, turn to page 17. If you want to turn back, turn to page 23."

CYOA have now made the stories available in iPod format, and one of the titles, 'The Abominable Snowman' is available for free download.

Read by R.A. Montgomery, it contains the original 116 pages of text, colour illustrations and sound effects.
