Behold the BIBLIO-MAT, A Book Dispensing Machine!

Pay a visit to The Monkey’s Paw, an antiquarian bookstore in Toronto, and put coins into this magical machine, and you’ll get a book! A randomly dispensed book! There are 112 million possibilities (so at two bucks a pop, it’ll only cost you $224 million to do it), and it’s a surprise every time. This one has our drool-o-meters turned up to eleven.
