Argentinian publishing house Eterna Cadencia wants to make sure new authors' first books don't just sit on the shelf, so they're forcing readers to get through their newest anthology, cleverly titled The Book That Can't Wait, in two months.

How can they ensure you've actually read the whole thing in that time? Well, if you don't finish the book within two months of the date you first cracked it open, the words literally start disappearing from the pages. What can you do with the blank book after that period? Well, once things are completely cleared up, it makes a great journal or sketch book.
