A bookstore in Toronto has a novel idea (no pun intended). They have installed a book vending machine.  At Monkey's Paw, for $2 you can take a chance at a book vending machine which dispenses a random used book book.

According to the store owner the response has been positive. Some people feel the random selection as somewhat serendipitous. What do you think?

I heard this story on NPR. What touched me was the part about a little boy who got a book from the machine. I can't recall the title, but he carried the book around with him EVERYWHERE and loved it. The novelty of it gave him a renewed love of books. I think it's awesome!! xo
