Weird things customers say in bookshops...
A new book has compiled the strangest - and funniest - things customers have asked booksellers
Customer: I'm looking for a book for my son. He's six.
Bookseller: How about this one - it's about-
Customer: Yeah, whatever, I'll take it.
Customer: (holding up a Jamie Oliver cookbook) Would you mind if I photocopied this recipe?
Bookseller: Yes I would.
Customer: Do you have a section on religion?
Bookseller: Sure, it's just over here.
Customer: You've got Richard Dawkins' books on here next to copies of the Bible.
Bookseller: That section is for all kinds of books relating to religion.
Customer: I hope you know that's a sin. And you will go to hell.
Customer: What books could I buy to make guests look at my bookshelf and think: 'Wow that guy's intelligent'?
Customer: Do you have this children's book I've heard about? It's supposed to be very good. It's called Lionel Richie and the Wardrobe.
