This Sunday Times Bestseller is a miscellany of hilarious and peculiar bookshop moments:
‘Can books conduct electricity?’
‘My children are just climbing your bookshelves: that’s ok… isn’t it?’
A John Cleese Twitter question [‘What is your pet peeve?’], first sparked the Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops blog, which grew over three years into one bookseller’s collection of ridiculous conversations on the shop floor.
This full-length collection illustrated by the Brothers McLeod also includes top ‘Weird Things’ from bookshops around the world.
A very entertaining collection. My favorite is the one with the Twilight-Wuthering Heights-Harry Potter mix. Hilarious!
