When The Bookstores Are Closed


Singapore bookstore BooksActually has launched the first two of a new series of book vending machines. The machines are located at the Singapore Visitors Centre and the National Museum of Singapore. The book vendors will be rotated every three months to new locations. Each holds about 150 books, with titles from local authors. Subject matter ranges from novels and short stories to poetry and graphic novels. According to BooksActually manager Renee Ting, the inspiration for the vending machines goes back to the 1937 Penguin Books Penguincubator.

    What a great idea – what if we had such vending machines at schools, cafeterias, malls…?
