At the risk of turning into a Times clipping service here’s another good one from Paper Cuts: A vending machine that dispenses books, discovered by one of their Web producers in Barcelona.
Of course these will soon be obsoleted by the Kindle, right?
Book kiosks are cool, though not as cool as this Chef Boy’Ardee vending machine that I took a picture of some years ago at Bear Mountain, NY. Best vending machine ever.
Selected titles include Fast Food Nation, Supersize Me and Fat Land: How Americans Became the Fattest People in the World. 🙂
I imagine these haven’t been introduced in America for fear that we will mistake the books for Doritos or Snickers, and eat them.
Cool. But even cooler is your verbified form of ‘obsolete.’ Somehow, I had not encountered that before 🙂
Looks enticing, but…how come they only stock two authors??
