Choose Your Own Adventure books released as iPod downloads

The Abominable Snowman

"You are a young gifted mountain climber traveling to Nepal with your best climbing buddy Carlos, to find the legendary Abominable Snowman (otherwise known to locals as a "Yeti"). Not long after your arrival in the Himalayas, Carlos goes missing. What do YOU do?," asks R.A. Montgomery.

Do you look for your friend Carlos or do you continue searching for the Abominable Snowman without him? You decide. Only this time, you click a link instead of turning to page 46.

The Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) series books of yesteryear are back as downloads for the iPod.

The Unofficial Apple Weblog reports that Chooseco is offering The Abominable Snowman CYOA book for iPod for free download from its site.

The text is from the original CYOA series, only this time with sound effects and links. The iPod eBook, once downloaded, is stored in your iPod's Notes folder. It's available for either Windows or Mac-configured iPods.

None of the other books appear to be available yet as iPod eBooks, but the box sets of 6 books are available for $27.
