… You to read Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell. It has been all over the book news recently, but if there happens to be someone out there who hasn’t read or bought this delightful tome, then this is a strong recommendation to do so.
It’s a collection of the sometimes funny, sometimes stupid and sometimes downright ignorant comments that bookshop customers have come out with, all wrapped up in an wonderfully illustrated, hardback tome and available for the bargain price of £7.99.
Not only has Jen put together a cracking book, she’s been doing lots of good all over the place. In her 100 Poem Challenge, she raised £4,250 for EEC International, that will go to the research centres looking for a cure for the degenerative eye disease associated with EEC Syndrome. To top it all off, she’s a witty twitterer (@aeroplanegirl) and all-round book lover, which makes her a good egg in my books.
This should never leave your bookshelf.
