001/∞ books i think are good.

John Dies At The End | David Wong

genre: horror/humor

You should not have touched this book with your bare hands.
NO, don’t put it down. It’s too late.
They’re watching you.
My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours.
You may not want to know about the things you’ll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it’s too late. You touched the book. You’re in the game. You’re under the eye.
The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why? You just have to trust me.
The important thing is this:
The drug is called Soy Sauce and it gives users a window into another dimension.
John and I never had the chance to say no.
You still do.
Unfortunately for us, if you make the right choice, we’ll have a much harder time explaining how to fight off the otherworldly invasion currently threatening to enslave humanity.
I’m sorry to have involved you in this, I really am. But as you read about these terrible events and the very dark epoch the world is about to enter as a result, it is crucial you keep one thing in mind:
None of this is was my fault.

Cathy’s Book: If Found call (650) 266-8233 | Stewart/Weisman/Brigg

genre: mystery/interactive

If your name isn’t Emma, put this book down, BACK OFF, and nobody gets hurt!

Emma - I know it all sound crazy. You (and Mom!) will be wondering where I’ve been disappearing to, and when I’ll be back. That’s why I’m leaving you all this evidence - in case something happens and I don’t come back.
Look at everything in my book.
Call the phone numbers.
Check out the websites.
But you can’t tell ANYBODY about it, unless you want to end up in over your head, like me.
So don’t worry. I’ll be OK (I think). Hey, maybe this is the beginning of a new life for me. For sure it’s the end of hte old one.
Call me.
Love, Cathy

Yes, the phone numbers actually work (try calling them!), yes, the photos are real, yes the handwriting is real and not printed. This book is ridiculous in the amount of interaction it gives.
