Novel Idea Dispenses Literature Via Touchscreen

I predict that just about anything will be put into a vending machine within the next 10 years. This literature vending machine just goes to show it.

Just when you realize you’re about to take a 5 hour train or plane ride without anything to do, there it is, a book vending machine. How convenient!

My only issue is, how can you read the back cover? Maybe they should have a touch screen that gives excerpts of the books, or a scrolling marque on top?

All in all, an interesting idea.
