Recently, inventive vending machines have been popping up around France. Instead of dispensing sweet treats or sugary drinks, however, these kiosks distribute short stories. Created by literature-loving company Short Édition, these savvy stalls promise to help pass the time, whether you're waiting at the airport, stuck at the train station, or even accompanying your significant other on a particularly trying trip to the mall.
