BOOK NOOK KOOKS
Jerry Seinfeld once said, A bookstore is one of the only pieces of physical evidence we have that people are still thinking. These bookstore employees might disagree. A customer said she was looking for a book. She couldn’t remember the title, author, or plot. “But,” she said, “the cover is red.”
Submitted by JULIA SCHORR, via Facebook I was at the information desk when a customer said, “Hi, you have a phone call for me?”
“I beg your pardon?” I said. “Over the intercom—I heard it! You said, ‘Mike, you have a phone call on line one!’”
“Sir, that’s our store manager’s name. We were letting him know he had a phone call.”
The customer walked away very disappointed.
We received a letter from a woman who wanted us to know that she had placed her father’s ashes in various nooks and crannies throughout our poetry room. She said it was her father’s favorite place in the world and she was comforted by knowing he was there.
