bookseller quotes

From PW Jan. 22nd issue, The 2006 Cuffies (Children’s bookseller picks)

Oddest Request by a Customer
“Someone asked for Goodnight Gorilla in audio – it’s a wordless book.”

“Your versions of fairytales are all too modern. I want something more traditional – like Disney.”

“So … it’s books that you sell?”

“I’d like a classic book to read aloud to my dog.”

Hee hee – my favorite is the first one, but they’re all good!
