Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Private Vegas - Maxine Paetro, James Patterson

James Patterson’s new book set to self-destruct


Article link here


I've never read anything by James Patterson but he has some innovative ideas about how to sell books. If you don't have the $294,038 needed to buy the edition of Private Vegas that you can then watch being destroyed by a SWAT team you can instead have 24 hours to read the novel for free with a special self-destructing app--each page disappears as soon as you finish it.


The article about it that I've linked is by Ron Charles of the Washington Post--one of the most energetic and entertaining professional book reviewers around. He has an absolutely wonderful hilarious SHADES OF GREY video on YouTube.  http://youtu.be/Hqy8zAdfNEU
