The Biblio-Mat is for all the indecisive book junkies who wonder around dusty book stores searching for a new piece of literature.

Take the guess work out of it and simply insert $2 in the Biblio-Mat for a random book selection. There’s no browsing, no reading the inside cover and no debate. It is as easy as playing the lottery, except you win every time!

The Biblio-Mat is a product of a Toronto bookstore called The Monkey’s Paw. The owner, Stephen Fowler came up with the idea and Craig Small of The Juggernaut animation studio made it happen.

"Of the people who have used the thing so far, almost every person has been pleasantly surprised and completely amused," says Fowler. I can think of two people who were dissatisfied with the book they got, but I can only assume they were people lacking in imagination and enthusiasm."
