Weird Things People Might Say In A Bookstore | The Bangzo BookWorm

Yes, you are right, this post was inspired by Jen Campbell's extremely addictive book "Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops" if you haven't read it, you should. 


"Why don’t bookstores have trolleys, my arms are aching!"

"I can’t find a single book that I like in here- maybe (x bookshop) has a better choice."

"Can I return this book even if I end up reading it- its covered the 30 return policy, right?"

"I’m not buying it- it is a lot cheaper on my Kindle."

"Shot in the dark, but do you stock Harry Potter?"

"I know this is buy one get one free, but this book set is a trilogy… how does that work?"

"Gosh, it’s a bit quiet in here."

"I'm not sure I like paperbacks, hardbacks smell a lot better."
"Hi, I want to buy this book to put on my Kindle." ( proceeds to get money out of purse and place paperback onto cashier desk)

"Why buy the book when I can watch the film- it will take less time anyway."

"Can you tell me where the Bible would be on the A-Z author shelf?"

"Look, it’s the first edition of the book (gasp) but why is it so expensive?"

"Argh, not a fan of any of those books over in Bestseller, whose idea was it to put them there anyway?"

"Hi, I've been looking for a certain book, but I can’t remember what it is called, can you help me?"

"What do you mean I can’t drink my coffee in here? I always drink my coffee while reading a book."

Person 1: "Are you going to buy that book?"
Person 2: "No, there is no point, I am just taking notes for my History exam tomorrow."

Have you heard any other weird things in a bookstore/ bookshop? Let me know!
