MurakamiWould you ever purchase a book from a vending machine?

Muzu, a publisher based in Poland, crafted and unleashed three such machines with the Polish translation of Haruki Murakami’s Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and the Year of His Pilgrimage for sale. According to the Haruki Murakami Stuff blog, these vending machines were set up in train stations located in Warsaw, Poznan, and Wroclaw. Follow this link to see a photo showcasing one of the vending machines.
