Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme #6

This is a pretty cool issue. It’s a “choose your own adventure” story where you make decisions and then turn to a particular page based upon the choice you make. I remember reading books like this when I was younger and how much I loved them. Not meaning to brag, but I made it successfully through on my first attempt. I some different choices on subsequent readings and the other ones sent me back to the beginning.

Some people view reading as a passive activity, but not me. As a reader, I engage myself in the text, place myself in the story, and imagine how I would respond in the various scenarios. And I think that is what is so cool about a choose-your-own-adventure book—it teaches young readers how to be active readers while igniting their imaginations. It also teaches a valuable lesson, that our choices have consequences. The decisions we make as we journey through life affect the outcomes. So choose wisely.

  1. I remember Choose Your Own Adventure! Very neat that this issue takes the same approach 🙂

  2. Fascinating! Equating reading with passivity is a failure of the imagination. 🙂 The best books have you traveling, immersing, expanding, imagining … and so on. A lot of activity. 🙂

    • Ha Ha! Totally agree, Jamie. Unfortunately, there are many people who lack imagination these days. Happily, I’ve surrounding myself with imaginative and creative people. Hope you are doing well. Have a wonderful day 🙂
