The Book That Can't Wait

Now THERE'S a gimmick you don't see every day -- a book with disappearing ink.  Once opened, you have two months to read it, and then it's gone.

Publisher Eterna Cadencia produced this anthology in an effort to promote its new authors ("if people don't read their first books, they'll never make it to a second") and I think it's a brilliant idea... but only because the book was given away for free.  I'm an avid re-reader, and unless a book like this also came with an e-edition, I don't know if I'd be willing to buy it.

On the other hand, I'm kind of liking the idea of having a limited-edition blank book on my shelf, knowing that I read it before it got away.  Hmmm...

  1. I don't think I'd be thrilled with paying for it. I'm a notoriously slow reader for one thing and I like to read when I'm ready. I've got books I've owned for 40 years that I still haven't read. Someday though.

    Hope all is going great for you.
