Review: Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell

12640991Blurb from Goodreads

From the hugely popular blog, 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.

From ‘Did Beatrix Potter ever write a book about dinosaurs?’ to the hunt for a paperback which could forecast the next year’s weather; and from ‘I’ve forgotten my glasses, please read me the first chapter’ to’Excuse me… is this book edible?’

My Thoughts
I’m aware the title is Weird Things Customers Say so it must be about weird things happen at a bookstore but I didn’t expect it will be that weird. I mean were they for real asking condom, ice cube and any other thing which doesn’t have anything to do with books or reading at a bookstore? It kind of amazed me in a weird way. But, this is definitely one of fun-hilarious books I’ve read, though I have to say it also kind of a sad book to me.
Result: 4 of 5 stars
