The lucky reader will have 24-hours to finish the book before it explodes. Don’t worry, there’s also a free ebook version.
<h1>James Patterson, one-man publishing empire and <a href="http://bzfd.it/1yRECkA">independent bookshop supporter</a>, has released a new book. Just one.</h1>
It costs $294,038, and <a href="http://bit.ly/1yREAJL">will self-destruct after 24 hours</a>.
<h1>Here's the trailer.</h1> <a href="http://bit.ly/1JlHXbo">http://bit.ly/1JlHXbo</a>
<h1>Serious bidders with a spare $300,000 in their back pocket will have a chance to buy "the most thrilling reading experience money can buy":</h1>
It's not clear why the dinner will be unforgettable, presumably because James Patterson is a master raconteur, not because of the terrifying possibility of death.
<h1>The campaign takes a pleasantly cheeky tone – yes there is a self destructing book worth $294,038, but there are also 1,000 self-destructing ebooks up for grabs.</h1>
They are free, and won't destroy your iPad.
