This week James Patterson released a new book, entitled – Private Vegas.
However, if you download a copy, you have exactly 24 hours to read it.
After 24 hours it automatically self-destructs.
This is a very unique type of digital rights managment (DRM) for an electronic book.
For a link to an article about the release by Seth Fiegerman, push the big red self-destruct button above — If you dare.
Mr. Patterson indicates that this self-destructing book is part of a unique reading experience for his current book.
This event reminds me of an old televison show from the 1960’s called Mission Impossible in which every eposide strated with a tape recording that destroyed itself after it was listened to.
What is your edge of sefl-dustructiong books?
Would you download a book if it, eventually disappeared?
If it self-destructed?
Mr. Patterson’s book was a free download.
Would you pay for an electronic book that had a time limit on it for you to read it?
An e-book that would eventually just disappear from your electronic device?

This post will self-destruct in ten seconds…
