Interactive Kindle Books Are My Kind of Nostalgia

I think we can all agree that if Shakespeare had been alive in the late-80s, he would've written Choose Your Own Adventure books. So thank you, Amazon, for bringing one of mankind's greatest literary genre achievements to Kindle.

The specific Choose Your Own Adventure franchise hasn't come to Amazon's ebook reader yet, but several "interactive" books along that vein have started to pop up in the Kindle Store. Chief among them: The King of Shreds and Patches, a desktop PC game that's been reborn as novel-length text-based game that sells for four bucks.


Sounds fun! And since I haven't owned a graphing calculator since 1999, could I make a modest request for Kindle Drug Wars? Maybe? [Amazon via Technology Review]
