You probably know the story about him. He’s the Spanish dude who went insane, became a knight, and jousted with windmills. But do you know why he went mad? We’re told on the first page: he read too much! Day and night he’d read stories of chivalry and knighthood so he snapped and became one in a day when there were no more knights.
Anyway, the ironic thing to me is that this book is about 1000 pages, and on the first page the author tells me the main character goes mad because he read too much!
So I told you that story to tell you this one — I wanted to tell you about the only books I enjoyed reading as a kid. Do you remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books? That’s all I’d read. Now they are comming to DVD. Now that’s a cool idea!
I wonder if anyone has ever done a choose-your-own-adventure website or blog. Now that would be…interesting.
