The Paper Gardens

I've been reading since I was 3, and I haven't seen any reason to stop. I'll read pretty much anything I can get my hands on, though I will admit to a crippling addiction to fantasy and YA books.

More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops

More Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops - Jen Campbell More Weird Things is much like the first book, but shorter. There were also a lot more warm, fuzzy conversations, especially with children in the various stores.

It feels like all of the best material went into the first book, though - the section dedicated to the author's store was much smaller, for instance. And that makes sense. Every service industry worker is going to have their share of amusing stories to tell, but it's not a constant 24/7 stream of hilarious hijinks and witty responses. So while More Weird Things definitely has some hilarious conversations, it just isn't quite the same.

All in all, it's not a bad book, and still made me laugh quite a bit.
