Book vending machine

I saw a book vending machine in a train station in Tokyo. I had never seen one before but I guess its not something really special. Have you ever seen a book vending machine?

    yes, there is one in Príncipe Pío shopping center in Madrid, just like this one. May be useful in a trainstation or airport when you have hours to wait and it´s 4 in the morning, shops closed and you want to read something 😀

    They are quite common in Seou (South Korea)l, ‘specially along the subway tracks.

    I actually saw one of these a while ago in (I think it was) Heathrow. It’s quite a clever idea as travellers are likely to buy a book on the spur of the moment.

    I saw one in Paris. I wanted to buy a book but it was out of order. ^^; I’ve never noticed them in Japan though.

    I have never seen a book vending machine. We have a lot of DVD movie vending machines here in Los Angeles but no book vending machines.

    Nopes. This is the first time i’m seeing a book vending machine. Here in India, I only saw some coin and fruit juice and coffee vending machines.
