‘Can books conduct electricity?’
‘My children are just climbing your bookshelves: that’s ok . . . isn’t it?’
The ‘Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops’ blog 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?’
This full-length collection illustrated by the Brothers McLeod also includes top ‘Weird Things’ from bookshops around the world.
