Story Time

I have always loved reading and I like to share stories with others by reading out loud. I also like to write my own stories. Storytelling is like entering a whole new world where you can meet new people and see new places.

The Internet now provides an array of interactive stories that come alive with sounds, actions and games making these tales impossible to forget. You can even create parts of a story yourself online.
Gather around the computer to enjoy interactive stories at these various sites:
