1,000 Opinions: Aura by Carlos Fuentes
This novella is an incredible read. I engulfed this short book in one sitting. Fuentes pulls the reader in through his 2nd person narrative. With a mix of aching melancholy and fear, I was both entranced and haunted by the character of Aura. She feels inevitable as a character - immortal, but a prisoner, a lover, and a ghost. Fuentes has poetic bouts when describing Aura, but nothing that disrupts the reader’s trance. 
My only gripe is that I wish I knew more, which is perhaps Fuentes’ goal. If you crave an atypical love story with echoes of Poe, I recommend Aura.
1,000 Books Behind Rating: 4/5

A new vending machine has been released which can print any book within minutes.

The Espresso Book Machine has access to 500,000 different books - the same as 23.6 miles of shelf space - and can even churn out a fresh copy of Crime and Punishment in just nine minutes.

Pages are printed at a rate of over 100 per minute and are then pressed, glued and cut to produce a pristine book.

Users simply pick the book they would like on a screen and wait for it to be printed … it certainly is a novel way of getting a new book.

"You don’t look at your watch again, that useless object tediously measuring time in accordance with human vanity, those little hands marking out the long hours that were invented to disguise the real passage of time, which races with a mortal and insolent swiftness no clock could ever measure. A life, a century, fifty years: you can’t imagine those lying measurements any longer, you can’t hold that bodiless dust within your hands."

Carlos Fuentes, Aura, Chapter 5, p. 139
