Choose Your Own Adventure comes to iPod

Choose Your Own Adventure has announced its first interactive children’s book for the iPod. “Unlike the typical ‘one way only’ story in a narrated audiobook, the CYOA download goes in countless directions as ‘you’ in the role of main character click on links to select the story’s direction,” explains the company. “The video screen allows the user to view full color illustrations, albeit in miniature. R. A. Montgomery, CYOA author and founder, narrates the story in which ‘you’ are a skilled mountain climber on an expedition through the Himalayas in search of the elusive Yeti. Sound effects like the whirl of a helicopter or howling winds enhance the sense of immersion.” Choose Your Own Adventure #1 - “The Abominable Snowman” audiobook is available as a free download until January 25, 2007.

I got an email stating my order would be shipped within a few business days - no link in the email to download.  I don’t think this is working right.  They should get things together on their site before advertising this.

The only item that is free is the “Abominable Snowman” on the iPod Download link at the top of the page.  You don’t need to register to download the free item.  If you use the link with the prices underneath then you will be buying the actual book.  If you want the free download only then use the iPod download link.  It’s 56.5MB’s in size.

I downloaded the Choose Your Own Adventure iPod without a problem. There is a direct link from the cyoastore.com website to download the audiobook.
This is really terrific and it brings back memories of reading everyone of the Choose Your Own Adventure books. Now that they are available, I am going to go to my bookstore and buy a bunch of them.
