Summary: Jen Campbell started a blog collecting all the ridiculous conversations overheard in her bookstore. Filled with fun and quirky illustrations and featuring contributions from book-sellers across the United States and Canada, as well as the UK, this book is a celebration of bookstores, large and small, and of the brilliant book-sellers who toil in those literary fields, as well as the myriad of colorful characters that walk through the doors everyday. This irresistible collection is proof positive that booksellers everywhere are heroes.

My rating: 7/10.

Customer: I'm looking for some books on my kid's summer reading list. Do you have Tequila Mockingbird?

Customer: Do you have any books by Jane Eyre?

Customer: Who is the author of the Shakespeare plays?

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