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.

The novel first came out in Murakami’s native Japan back in April 2013. Knopf, an imprint at Penguin Random House, will release the English language edition, translated by Japanese literature expert Philip Gabriel, on August 12, 2014. Upcoming4.me reports that it will also be available to United Kingdom readers on that same date.
