Mini-Reviews x 2: Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops Vol 1 & 2

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell

English, 119 pages, Vol 1. Read in December 2013

Mini-Review in English:

Some quotes in this was just hilarious! People can be soo stupid sometimes. Good read. Especially fun too read since I now work in a bookshop =).

Quotes from the book:

“CUSTOMER: I read a book in the sixties. I don’t remember the author, or the title. But it was green, and it made me laugh. Do you know which one I mean?”

“CUSTOMER: Oh, look, these books are all signed. (Pause) I wonder who signed them ?”

“CUSTOMER: If I were to, say... meet the love of my life in this bookshop, what section do you think they would be standing in?”
"CUSTOMER: Do you bother to arrange your books at all, or are they just plonked places?
BOOKSELLER: They're in alphabetical order...
CUSTOMER: Oh."
The last quote actually happens all the time >.<.

Not as funny as the first book but still quite fun =).

  2. När jag jobbade i bokaffär fick jag höra: "Jag hörde om en bok, en roman, som jag tror någon skrev om i en tidning, den var grön och tydligen riktigt bra. Har ni den?"
    Till saken hör att det var en deckare och boken var blå. Men vi hittade den! ^^

  5. Underbart. Känner igen mkt från biblioteket också. Bästa känslan är när man lyckas hitta boken de söker på de ytterst vaga beskrivningarna :)
