A vending machine containing an array of books published by Penguin Books has been installed at British train station. This has now been achieved following a collaboration between Penguin Books, Great Western Railway, Graddons Vending, and Bookbag. Sir Allen Lane who founded Penguin Books believed that high quality, engaging, and reasonably priced books should be available to everyone, anywhere. The idea for a book vending machine is based on Penguin’s Books origins. Titles available in the vending machine include 1984 by George Orwell, ‎The Thursday Murder Club and ‎The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman, Grown Ups by Marian Keyes,
