Inventor, writer and publisher of the Choose Your Own Adventure series, R.A. Montgomery died on November 9th at the age of 78. Montgomery was best known for making reading fun for millions of young readers, myself included. I remember choosing so many adventures growing up. Usually the ones that got me killed as soon as possible. I am a poor decision maker. Eventually, I learned to draw charts outlining all the different decision trees and where they took me so I could beat the system. "So..." That's right -- I used to cheat at reading. Rest in peace, Mr. Montgomery.

Thanks to Palvo, Charlotte M and Slade, who are great decision makers and always got the best outcomes. Lucky.
