    Does anyone remember these and know if they still make them? My boyfriend and I were talking about them but we're not sure if they are still made.

    I read one once when I was little. It was Super Mario Bros themed.

    There are really crappy Goosebumps ones I read back in 3rd grade.

    I think my favorite CYOA book may have been #25, "Prisoner of the Ant People"; at the very least, it's the only one I really remember...

    I don't know that they're still published, but you can certainly find them in used bookstores. Last I saw, they were up through #200 or so and were still churning out "Cave of Time" adventures. A few months ago I saw that another company is publishing nonlinear stories like those, only these are aimed at people who grew up with CYOA and are now adults:

    :D No, this isn't a joke.

    The crowning glory IMHO was the Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks series, where you had a little character sheet and used dice when you had to fight monsters and whatnot...

    wow, total flash back to childhood! :D i used to love reading those, but i always was too impatient on what could have happened if i went the other way, so i would skip ahead... i wonder how many ways there were in each book....

    I have a heap of those things! i always got lost or died though, dont recall ever making it through an entire one. The Goosebumps ones in particular. Is it true that R.L. Stein had(s) ghostwriters?????
