When I was a kid, I was obsessed with choose-you-own-adventure books. Sure, the trademarked Choose Your Own Adventure series with the white and red spines were ubiquitous, but I loved all the wacky different ones that were available: Twistaplot, Fantasy Forest, Which Way Books, Find Your Fate, Pick-a-Path…..all of ’em.
Hands down my favorite, though, were the Time Machine books. They were a “spinoff” series from the behemoth Choose Your Own Adventure series, and the gimmick was that you had a time machine that would send you back to various periods in Earth’s history.
My daughter is into CYOA books now in a huge way, so I thought it would be fun to conduct a giveaway with one of these classic titles. Up for grabs in this giveaway is Time Machine #11: Mission to World War II. It’s a 1st edition from 1986 and is in very good condition. Spread the word and good luck!
