I really enjoyed this and it‘s a quick read. I‘m not sure which type of bookshop person I am though
Very short, mildly humorous caricatures, better suited to a series of magazine articles or blog posts than a book.
I hate saying negative things about books, but this one just just bring on my nerves. It's a very small book, so I will the entire thing, but something about the author rubs me the wrong way. The book is just filled with him making observations and even making fun of his bookstore patrons. I was looking for a funny read, but not at the expense of some innocent people who are just being themselves. Shame. #humor #notfunny
The tagged is about book store customers and the Quiet Please book@is about the wild and peculiar things observed in a library - both are hilarious 😆

This was a fun quick read. We have either probably met the people described here or have some in among our family and friends. Would recommend as a first non-fiction read, or as a break between books.

Shaun describes the Poldark books as getting an unexpected revival « following a BBC production of the series made famous by the actor Aidan Turner removing his shirt several times during each episode. » ????
My work book club is meeting on Monday to discuss this very slim book. I found it riotously funny but I am a notorious cranky ass. Place your bets now for how many times my colleagues make reference to this during our discussion.
Seven kinds of people you find in Bookshops
My first DNF of the year! I hate DNF'ing books. But, I can't even! I was expecting something else. Something fun and light. SO BORING!! *roll eyes* Missed opportunity of a great writing prompt!! I can't take another hr .....
I rarely pick pan as my rating but this one really didn't do it for me. I found it long winded, a bit boring and unkind. Not sure if the author was trying to be funny and I didn't get it.
Well this is cute!
But I‘m not sure if I‘m ready to find out what kind I am 🤣
Fun, quick, short and sweet. I may or may not have found myself relating to some of the bookshop patrons described inside. Very much a comfort read. I felt like I was sitting inside a bookstore in Scotland with the author (who is mildly grumpy I‘d say) watching the people he describes walking in and out the door. Haven‘t read the author‘s previous works but I‘ll be adding them to my list now. #bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks
Not feeling the greatest at the moment. Haven‘t been anywhere to catch anything so I think the stress is finally catching up with me. So I am going to snuggle up in blankets with my dogs and try to get some reading in. This seems like a good distraction for the time being.
I‘ve been reading the tagged book this afternoon and heartily enjoying myself (even though I think I see a bit of myself in some of these types 😆).
I love this author‘s cranky, snarky humour; he‘s the owner of the biggest bookshop in Wigtown (Scotland‘s book town, which I WILL visit one day!).
