Book Review: “Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops”

Book twenty five of my 2019 Reading Challenge.

Jen Campbell’s Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops

I’m officially halfway through my 2019 Reading Challenge! I know I’m a little behind, but I’m still confident I will finish 50 books before the year is over.

To celebrate my halfway point I read a book of collected quotes and conversations from bookstore customers. As an avid reader and purchaser of books, I’ve spent a decent amount of time in bookstores. I’ve certainly overheard my fair share of strange questions in bookstores and regular stores for that matter so I found this collection very entertaining and worth the read.

One of my favorites:

Customer: I just don’t like my Kindle. I like real books. They are like cozy blankets to me.

Mary Jane Reed – G. J. Ford Bookstore, St. Simmons, GA

I relate to that quote so much. I was given a Kindle for my birthday a couple years ago and haven’t touched it in probably a year and a half. One day I’ll pick it up again, but for now I have plenty of physical paper page books.

Stay tuned for my next review and the rest of the 25 books of my challenge: The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood.
