Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops – Jen Campbell

Weird Things

It was fortuitous that just when I picked this fun little book up to write a post about, I got a phone call with a quote that would, most definitely, have fitted right in with the collection of weird things people say in bookshops; though it was over the phone, not actually in the store…

Me ‘Hello, Fairfield Books…’

Customer: ‘ Hi, I’m after a book… A specific book…’

Me: ‘Yep…’ (expecting details like a title or author)

Customer: ‘Yeah, I can’t remember the exact title, but… do you guys, like, have a lot of books there?’

Me: ‘… haha, yep we do. Lots of books…’

Sadly we didn’t have the one he wanted.

‘Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops’ is a compilation of hilarious quotes from bookshops in the UK.

Here are  a few examples:

‘Did Beatrix Potter ever write any books about dinosaurs?’

‘Do you have this children’s book I’ve heard about? It’s supposed to be very good. It’s called Lionel Richie and the Wardrobe.’

A great gift – I couldn’t stop laughing!
