James Patterson Offers $294,038 Self-destructing Book

I like to read, and while I certainly like sci-fi books as much as the next geek, I really like action novels like the Mitch Rapp series. If you like to read James Patterson, the author’s latest book called Private Vegas is available with a couple of strange twists.

The first thousand folks to buy the normal hardback also get a digital version of the book that self-destructs in 24 hours after you start reading. That digital book has a countdown timer at the top and apparently, you can steal time from other readers if you want.

The coolest versions is a physical copy that self destructs in 24 hours and apparently bursts into flames. That book costs the strangely precise and ridiculous amount of $294,038(USD). The purchase also gets you a private trip – I’d wager to Vegas – and a fancy meal with James Patterson when you can talk about the burns you got reading his latest book.
