Random Book Dispenser

Here is something very close to what we are doing here on Dark Roasted Blend with our random "Time Slices" - pick a random book, "every book a surprise!". Seen in a Monkey's Paw store in Toronto, Ontario, this vending machine accepts $2 for any book and completes transaction with a triumphant old telephone bell ring! See how it works here.




Or, collect all 112 million titles! Sounds tempting.

Inger Lise Rypdal, Sweden? Absolutely not, she is and has always been Norwegian. She turned 65 just a few days ago and looks better than a lot of women half her age.
