Singapore is Installing Vending Machines With Books to Encourage People to Read

A local bookstore in Singapore has come up with an interesting solution to encourage people to read.

BooksActually recently installed two vending machines filled only with books to offer them knowledge instead of junk food, according to Mashable.

The idea is to help fulfill a need in areas which lack bookstores. Kenny Leck, owner of BooksActually, told Channel news Asia:

“The whole idea is about accessibility and eyeballs. These vending machines could be a visual touchpoint. You may not buy (a book) but we’ll let you know these exist. And from there, there could be more possibilities.”

The third machine is set to be installed at the Goodman Arts Centre, which is also Singapore’s HQ for the National Arts Council.
