Det handler den om:
“Customer (holding up a book): What’s this? The Secret Garden? Well, it’s not so secret now, is it, since they bloody well wrote a book about it!”

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops was a Sunday Times bestseller, and could be found displayed on bookshop counters up and down the country. The response to the book from booksellers all over the world has been one of heartfelt agreement: it would appear that customers are saying bizarre things all over the place – from asking for books with photographs of Jesus in them, to hunting for the best horse owner’s manual that has a detailed chapter on unicorns.

“Customer: I had such a crush on Captain Hook when I was younger. Do you think this means I have unresolved issues?”

More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops has yet more tales from the antiquarian bookshop where Jen Campbell works, and includes a selection of ‘Weird Things…’ sent in from other booksellers across the world.

Min mening:
Jeg tror det er umuligt ikke at elske disse bøger, jeg elsker dem i hvert fald. De er virkelig hurtig læste, og næsten umuligt ikke at grine undervejs. Der er ikke den store forskel på denne og så forgængeren Weird things customers say in bookshops.

Jeg bliver virkelig forundret og nogen gange forfærdet over hvor dumme folk kan være. Nogle spørgsmål og samtaler er virkelig så dumme at jeg næsten sad og krummede tæer, hvor andre kunder bare har været så ubehøvlede at det burde være ulovligt.

Udover dem der fik tæerne til at krumme sig sammen, var der også de spørgsmål og samtaler der fik mig til at grine højlydt, og jeg kan på samme tid ikke lade være med at have ondt af folk der stiller så uvidende spørgsmål, og ind i mellem undre mig om de gør det med vilje, fordi de keder sig?
