The Biblio-Mat book vending machine

June 7, 2013 Bookish chat 0

Bookish Finds is a feature that Asti @ A Bookish Heart does weekly on her blog. She finds the most amazing book art every week for us all to admire, so I strongly suggest you go check hers out after you have a look at my little find.

When you think of vending machines, what springs to mind?  Coffee, cigarettes, chocolate?  Well, how about books! In Canada for $2, you can get a unknown, used book from this vending machine.  The Biblio-Mat is a random book dispenser built by Craig Small for The Monkey’s Paw, a second-hand bookshop in Toronto

Put in your money and you will hear gears turning, a bell ringing and then an old and unusual book falls down the slot just for you.  Sounds fun, I love surprises and I love books and I would definitely try this out.  Going on my bookish bucket list!
