We’re in the process of changing rooms around in our house. One of the joys (and pains) of this process is going through every… single… nook… and… cranny.
Now, in doing that, one is bound to find some long-lost items. These (practically) literally-buried treasures are unearthed after years of being forgotten. Once you find them, though, the rush of memories is so awesome.
Take, for instance, these beauties, which I uncovered in the back of a bookcase.
These are my incomplete collection of the Endless Quest series, the Dungeons & Dragons version of Choose Your Own Adventure books. I was a fan of the latter, and when I saw the first book in Toys ‘R’ Us, I snagged it immediately. I had been playing Dungeons & Dragons for over a year at the time.
I loved Dungeon of Dread, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the books in the series. I missed a few, but I’m happy with the ones I have. I’m especially happy to have them still.
One thing that confuses me is that I have two copies of Dungeon of Dread. I have no recollection of buying two, or of receiving a second as a gift. The first memory I have of it is when my parents gave me a whole box of books from my old room in their house, after I had graduated college. It was a mystery back then, too.
Have you read any of the Endless Quest books? Do you still have them? And, most importantly, would you be willing to, ahem, donate any to round out my collection?
