Hot Slut Of The Day!

You Are A Shark, the Choose Your Own Adventure book with one of the greatest titles and covers.

Yesterday, a piece of some of our childhoods turned to page 45 in the Book of Life and fell down a cliff before getting eaten by a tiger when we learned that one of the men responsible for creating Choose Your Own Adventure is now up in heaven, choosing his own adventures with the angels. R.A. Montgomery the original publisher and one of the writers of the CYOA series died at his home in Vermont last Sunday at the age of 78. The CYOA site didn’t say what he died of.

In 1977, author Ed Packard brought the first CYOA book, Sugarcane Island, to R.A. Montgomery. R.A. was all about it and believed it could be a series. He published Sugarcane Island and the rest is Choose Your Own Adventure history! Over the course of 20 plus years, 230 CYOA books were published and 250 millions copies have been sold in 40 languages. It’s the 4th best selling series of children’s books in the world. In 2003, R.A. started a company called ChooseCo to bring the series back.

I read a huge chunk of CYOA books as a kid and teenager (and grown up, okay) and it was the first series to really get me into reading shit. The one book I never read and always wanted to read was You Are A Shark, which was written by Ed Packard. I never knew about this one when I was a kid, but saw the cover years later. Look at that shit. How can you not want to read it? It’s called “You Are A Shark” and the cover has a monk who is totally over it, an eagle who is coming after that monk, a sculpture of Jocelyn Wildenstein’s current face and a boy shark with poodle hair.

Of course I found a used copy of You Are A Shark on eBay and got that shit. I’ll tell you if I eat that monk-hating eagle and save the day. I will, because I’m the kind of CYOA cheater who finds the best ending and works my way backwards.
