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