Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops was a Sunday Times bestseller, and could be found displayed on bookshop counters up and down the country.

I couldn't get enough of the first book!
Some stories are so absurd and I can't believe they happened--and that is why they're in this book.
Will read more books by the same author. ( )

Only a couple were funny; the rest were "meh", most were really just dumb and sounded fake. ( )

Not to be read in public....

As the guffaws at the ridiculous things that people ask in bookshops, and now library will make you laugh out loud! A lot!!

This book is as good as the first. There are some absolute howlers from the misinformed beast that is the general public. People seem so misinformed when it come to anything these days. The things that they ask for or say whilst in a bookshop
Beggar belief. Also amusing in the refresing honesnty that you get from a small child; I am not sure what a ‘Book Ninja’ is, but it sounds cool. ( )
