Japan's book vending machine!

In Japan, a vending machine on the train platform, offering pocket-sized

bestseller titles!


It never ceases to amaze me how creative these ideas can be. It's a great way to encourage people to read! But first, if western publishers are willing to produce pocket-sized books, prices will be more competitive and affordable, despite growing popularity of e-books. I still prefer physical copies myself, though I'm in danger of a book-slide ;)


If there was one near you, what knid of books would you want them to provide?
