Weird things people say in bookshops


What’s this literary criticism section? Is it for books that complain about other books?

Can books conduct electricity?

I’m just going to nip to the supermarket to do the weekly shop. I’m going to leave my sons here, is that OK? They’re three and five. They’re no bother.

Do you sell Christmas trees?

Do you sell ice cubes?

Do you sell bath plugs?

Someone should have taught that Shakespeare guy how to spell. Am I right, or am I right?

Do you keep the pornography in the photography section?

Do you have a book which lists the weather forecast for the rest of this year? 

Did I leave my bicycle in here?


I could go on, and on. If you want to read about Hitler the Jewish American film star, Jane Eyre’s other books, or the lack of respect for the fallen shown by a bookshop with no books on weaponry, this is the book for you.
