When I think about my first reading experiences, I go to a few places: comics, sci-fi, sherlock holmes. But when I think about my first experiences in libraries (especially the elementary school library), my most vivid memories are of the long shelf filled with Choose Your Own Adventure titles. How I loved their pre-hypertext web; so many narratives wound into one trade paperback. I’d read each with a finger marking the point where the narrative branched; a way back to safety if the story took an unfortunate turn. You Chose Wrong is a Tumblr dedicated to just those moments, and it’s digital archiving and curation at its finest. Nostalgia inbound.
