You only have 24 hours to read this book before it destroys itself

Has reading become too boring for you? Do you wish your books were as ephemeral as your Snapchat stories? Then perhaps you should get a special edition copy of Private Vegas, a suspense novel by James Patterson, which will self-destruct a while after you begin reading.

The first thousand buyers will be able to download a free digital copy of the book, which is set to disappear after 24 hours. Readers will see a countdown atop their screen, and they can “steal” time from others.

More interesting is the singular self-destructing physical copy,  which will dispose of itself in a blaze of literary glory, if the ad below is to be believed.

That special edition will set you back $294,038. But hey, at least they throw in a private trip and a five-course meal with the author as freebies.
