This irresistible collection is proof positive that booksellers everywhere are heroes A simple Twitter question posed by John Cleese?“What is your biggest pet peeve?”?inspired Jen Campbell to start a blog collecting all the ridiculous conversations overheard in her bookstore. “Did Beatrix Potter ever write a book about dinosaurs?” “Did Charles Dickens ever write anything fun?” “I’ve forgotten my glasses, can you read me the first chapter?” “Excuse me . . . is this book edible?” Filled with fun and quirky illustrations by the award-winning Brothers McLeod and featuring contributions from booksellers across the United States and Canada, as well as the author’s native UK, Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores is a celebration of bookstores, large and small, and of the brilliant booksellers who toil in those literary fields, as well as the myriad of colorful characters that walk through the doors everyday. 60 b&w illustrations
