James Frey's Endgame Series Cover

James Frey--first known for his Million Little Pieces fiasco--will be releasing a new series around the world in October of this year. It has been released that the book will be enhanced by a number of additional, real-life attributes. The million dollar cover of the first book has been released; the picture is actually of a million dollars in gold that one reader will have the chance to claim. There will be clues masquerading within the text as well as released on various social media outlets leading to the prize. Rumors of a video game and Hollywood movie related to the series have also been circulating. These add-ons are expected to parallel the plot, which will follow 12 teenagers who are taking part in a treasure hunt to determine the fate of the world. Will you be taking part in the hunt? You have until October 7th to decide, but the earlier you start preparing, the better, it seems...
This sounds like a good hunt, but am I willing to buy a James Frey book? I'm not sure, to be honest. I'll have to check out the first clues and decide...
Thats an interesting marketing point for his series-offering a real prize. This reminds me of interactive games that take you into the real world. Could we call this the book version of geocaching?

A Blissful Place for Manga Lovers!
For the longest time I only have one reason for visiting Japan. Nope, it's not for food. Nope, it's not for fashion. Yes. It's for hot spring! I may look an average 20 something gal but I'm a grandma at heart. I've been told that many times because of my peculiar lifestyle. I love jacuzzi and hot spring is one of the thing I've always wanted to try after watching dramas that features this fabulous chamber. Even though I really wanted to visit Japan I didn't think hot spring would justify the trip because Taiwan also have hot spring. The ticket and accommodation in Taiwan is more budget-friendly than Japan. It was not until today I found another reason to go visit Japan. Books & Bed This concept is really intriguing. Though, I don't openly express it, I'm a manga girl at heart. Throw me in a room with a bunch of manga and I will be more than happy to read them. This is place is truly a gem for book lovers and someone who appreciates minimal architect. At Book and Bed Hostel you get a beautiful view of the city at night and get unlimited access to book in their library until your eyes become drowsy. The industrial interior design is filled with cement walls, wooden bookshelves and wooden single beds. Obviously, it's not a place for you to get a comfy pillow and cozy bed. If you are solo or duo traveler, this is the type of place that will bring you a blissful evening. What more do you want from a short vacation getaway than a place to sleep and get inspired? Anyone else feel the same way?
