Someday, I hope to see a vending machine like this on a neighborhood street corner...
At a Canadian bookshop called The Monkey's Paw, a vending machine for books has been installed. For a mere $2, the vending machine will dispense a random tome to the curious reader. Seems like fun, no? The vending machine's exterior reminds me of those old cheap paperbacks you find in discount bins at used bookstores. Y'know, the vintage Penguin ones.
Here's a video of the vending machine in action. Doesn't it make you want to hop a plane and go bookshopping in Toronto?
