You and your date have a wonderful day planned filled with outdoor activities. You anticipate the date all week, and finally it comes!

Unfortunately, the rain came with it. What do you do now? You can’t go to the beach during a thunderstorm, and hiking in the rain can be miserable. The solution: Choose Your Own Adventure.

Choose Your Own Adventure books, often abbreviated CYOA, is a series of books written from 1979 to 1998 comprising 185 titles. Although these books are written for children, they can be a blast to read with a date.

What makes CYOA books unique is that you choose how the story unfolds. Throughout the book you are given different decisions to make, and depending on what you choose, you can end up turning into a whale, getting killed by aliens, or becoming rich and famous.

Don’t have any CYOA books? Head to your local used bookstores or shop online at eBay. You can generally get them for $1-$3 per book online, and they are well worth the investment.

Bonus tips: Try reading the story using voices as if you were reading to a child, or change the character names to your friends’ names.
