Book Review: 'More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops' by Jen Campbell

Jen Campbell, the poor lady who deals with the general public when they enter a bookshop, is back with more tales that will make you question the future of the human race.

Not all are encounters with morons, there are encounters with cool people, and funny encounters with children. And I think that some readers of her previous book are visiting her store and saying shit to get in her next book.

Here is a great example:

CUSTOMER (pulls her Kindle out of her bag): Look at it! I dropped it in the bath!
BOOKSELLER: If you did that with a book, you could just put it on the radiator and then flatten it out between two heavier books.
CUSTOMER (seriously): Do you think that would work for this, too?

This is another book full of chuckles for book nerds and cynics. It is a quick read, and there may not be much volume for your dollar, but still, laughter is pretty valuable.
