You have 24 hours to read this book before it self destructs

Self-destructing book gives readers 24 hours to finish it before it, well, self destructs

In something that feels like it's right out of a James Bond movie or Inspector Gadget, James Patterson is giving away 1000 copies of a self-destructing digital advance copy of his latest novel, Private Vegas.

If you don't feel like you're stepping on the side of craziness, well, there's a real self-destructing copy of the book that costs $294,038. This copy includes a dedicated bomb squad, and more. You could spend nearly $300,000 in a much better way - feel free to donate it for me for example - but hey, if you want a self-destructing book and your own bomb squad, you know where to go.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
