The Coolest Alternative Investment That I've Known Of - with 15,700% Returns!

The simple definition of investment, by Google, is "the action or process of investing money for profit". So, there are countless investment methods/vehicles that fits this definition. Of course, one that fits the definition of coolest must be something very with WOW factor.  

Today, one of my friend shared in his Facebook that he has made a 15,700% returns with his hobby-tuned-investment. I am really happy for him. 

Curious to know what is this right? Read on...

To its simplest form, it is only a book. 

Of course, it is not an "ordinary" book, it is one of Andrew Lang's book.

He bought the book with mere USD 40+ and resold it with USD 6,300/- 

WOW! Crazy right? 

In the current internet age  as well as the influx of eBooks, one might thought that physical books will worth lesser and lesser. But the truth is, it might just the opposite i.e. it makes the physical books (especially those classics, limited editions) worth more in the future.

Even though I am a physical books lover too, but it surprises me quite a bit as I never thought that someone will pay such an hefty price just for a second-hand BOOK! Of course, such fortune might falls only once in the blood moon (blue moon is out-dated already) but it is still the coolest alternative investment that I've known so far. 

Maybe it is time for you to do some spring cleaning at your bookshelf and hopefully you can dig out some treasure(s) yourself too ;-)
