We’re taking the Penguin Books vending machine on the road

Nominate your local rail station

Please note that our suggestion box has now closed! Thank you for all of your nominations.

In 1934, our founder Allen Lane decided to start Penguin Books after he couldn’t find anything to read at Exeter St Davids train station. Almost 90 years later, you can now pick up a book for your travels from the Penguin Books vending machine at that same historic location.

With the help of our partners at Graddon vending, we’re going to add one more book vending machine at another station in the UK, and we need your help deciding where.

Fill in the form below before Friday 14 April to make your nomination.

The only rule: there’s no better way to buy a book than from a bookseller, so your nominated station can’t already have a bookshop.
