100 Books in 2012: Book 77 "Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops"

I used to work in a bookstore, so when I won Jen Campbell's "Weird Things" in a Twitter giveaway last month, I was thrilled.

This book didn't disappoint.  It's a light little morsel, easily gobbled up in one sitting, and anyone who's worked retail will hear the truth of the anecdotes.  Prepare to laugh, sigh, and resolve to never be "that customer".

Makes me wish I'd started writing down some of the weird things I heard while working at Barnes and Noble!

What's the strangest thing you ever heard or saw at work?


  1. I used to work at a Hallmark. I'm sure I heard some strange things, but it was so many years ago that I can't remember them now. LOL

    This sounds like a fun read! I'm definitely going to check it out. Thanks! :)

    1. It's a light little bite: perfect for a lazy Saturday!
