If you knew me at all, you would know that whenever I step into a library, I have a hard time coming back out with nothing. And so, this was one of my spoils from my 30 minute pop-in on Tuesday. I was about to rush off for tuition when I spotted this on one of the lower shelves. I recognised the title but couldn’t place where. It didn’t take me long though, to figure out that I had watched the author’s youtube channel! (Only on occasion….I doubt I’m anywhere near her reading standard)
This book doesn’t pretend to be what it’s not. As you can gather from the title, this is a lightning fast read, and great for a chuckle. Some of the quotes do require prior knowledge of famous books, but I faced little difficulty with most of them. Though I confess it took me an entire day to figure out what was so funny about the cover. Clearly I don’t know classics well enough. Oh bother. Still, even if you’ve never read a book in your life, you’d be able to laugh at some of the ridiculous situations that booksellers have encountered. Bon appétit.
