Book-Worm Droppings

£9.99

Product description

A collection of remarks overheard in second hand bookshops, ranging from the mind-boggling to the frankly scandalous.
Examples include "Have you got any books on bomb-making? It's for my son's school project."; "I had a book myself once. Never read it. It was blue. I don't suppose you've got a copy?"; "Is this the greengrocer?" No, Sir, we're a bookshop. "Oh, well, do you have any lip salve, then?"

In near fine condition and great fun.
