More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops Hardback
by Jen Campbell
Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops was a Sunday Times bestseller, and could be found displayed on bookshop counters up and down the country.
The response to the book from booksellers all over the world has been one of heartfelt agreement: it would appear that customers are saying bizarre things all over the place - from asking for books with photographs of Jesus in them, to hunting for the best horse owner's manual that has a detailed chapter on unicorns. Customer: I had such a crush on Captain Hook when I was younger.
Do you think this means I have unresolved issues? More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops has yet more tales from the antiquarian bookshop where Jen Campbell works, and includes a selection of 'Weird Things...' sent in from other booksellers across the world.
The book is illustrated by the BAFTA winning Brothers McLeod.

Review by Fliss88
This is a very funny book, full of amazingly silly, incredibly unbelievable snippets of overheard conversation, like "Can I spend my Amazon gift card here?" I must go out and buy the first book!

Liked that this was a quick familiar read, as with the first one I looked forward to my favourites.Would have liked some of the other quotes to have illustrations but they were all very funny.So many favourite quotes but most were too long to write out in full in my book journal.

I did not like it as much as the previous one, but More Things... is still hilarious. In this book the dialogues did seem like far-fetched anecdotes, and some of them were not very funny. I really liked all the children's ones - and I loved seeing that children love to read in this age and time. Some of their parents were pretty disappointing, though. How could you possibly think that your child reads too much? Incomprehensible. Some of my favourite quotes:WOMAN (holding a copy of a Wight Watchers book in one hand, and The Hunger Games in the other: Which of these dieting books would you recommend most?CUSTOMER: I really don't like the planet today - can you recommend a book set far, far away?LITTLE GIRL: I read a book last week called What Katy Did.BOOKSELLER: Did you like it?LITTLE GIRL: It was OK. I didn't think it was very realistic, though. My name is Katy, and I haven't done any of the things that the girl in the book has done.CUSTOMER: If I had a bookstore, I'd make the mystery section really hard to find.
