"Book Vending Machine. You know how I love the Japanese vending machines? Well, here’s another one I don’t think I have mentioned properly on the blog before, it’s a soft back book vending machine! Found on the Ebisu station train platform...It has a variety of popular and best selling pocket books lined up, something suitable for everyone it seems, at prices around 550 yen."

A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocative and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan
