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