really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction, humour, 2012

I have to say this was such a joy to read; as a book lover I really appreciated all the weird things customers say in bookstores. I would love to be a bookseller for many reasons but to experience this kind of silliness would really make my day. Well worth a read. You will get some great laughs from these customers with ones like;

“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.”

“Do you stock Nigella Lawson under ‘Sex’ or ‘Cookery’?”

“Is this book edible?”

“Did Anne Frank ever write a sequel - I really enjoyed her first book?”

Plus many, many more.

Mish This sounds like a fun book to read

Tfitoby so did you order this one or buy from a local shop or what? I'm going to need to buy several I think.

Michael I couldn't wait, got the kindle version

Tfitoby ordered one from bookdepository to start with. it'll be fun to read about my life in somebody elses book.

Michael It's well worth reading through
