Book Vending Machine

Leave a comment

I recently saw a post at the Toronto’s The Star website and it piqued my interest. It’s about a book vending machine of all things! Can’t decide what to read? Slide in a toonie and a random book will pop out! It’s located at the Monkey’s Paw book store and the machine is a re-telling of the tale of the Monkey’s paw- be careful what you wish for because it might happen. The book vending machine is solid so you can’t see what you are choosing so it is really a mystery.

I find this idea quite fascinating. I mean they have vending machines for junk food, healthy food, a variety of items and now books! Now you don’t have to search out a book store but can instead go find a vending machine that has books. There have been book vending machines popping up everywhere, so there is boound to be one crossing your path sooner rather than later.

Kudos to the creators for thinking and making this idea a reality.

What do you guys think? Have you ever ran across one of these machines?
