Such exciting news!
Folks can walk into any location with the fun to watch EBM, call up a favorite title, and walk out five minutes later with their very own copy - it's instant gratification!
What's an EBM? Expresso Book Machine
"The patented Espresso Book Machine® (EBM) makes a paperback book in minutes, at point of need. Through its EspressNet® digital catalog of content, books can be ordered online or onsite at bookstores, libraries, and non-bookstore retailers. Over seven million in-copyright and public-domain titles are available on the network. The technology is also ideal for self and custom publishing."
Now what this means for you, dear readers, is that you can walk into a location and walk out that same day with a fully printed book in hand! Not ordered and wait - but you can start reading immediately. Formerly this instant gratification was only available at a very few select mortar and brick stores - or for ebook purchasers... and there are still some purests out there who enjoy the feeling of a book in their hands.
And there are NO shipping charges - how much better can this get? Even overseas readers can enjoy print copies of books WITHOUT those exorbitant shipping charges.
There are dozens of these machines already out there ALL OVER THE WORLD - and they are expecting that amount to more than double by the end of 2012.
Right now you can find EBMs in the following countries:
United States of America
United Arab Emirates
