Seven Kinds of People You Find in Bookshops by Shaun Bythell

Green Hills

If you've ever worked in a bookstore, or ever wondered what it is like to work in one, Shaun Bythell's Seven Kinds of People you find in Bookshops is for you! Covering all the archetypes you will see in a single day, from the Young Family to the Bore, Shaun Bythell recalls these customers with great affection and admiration, but with a sprinkling of scepticism, a necessity in the bookselling world. Never fear, Shaun has even managed to write about the different types of staff you'll find, which is eerily accurate. Seven Kinds of People you find in Bookshops is a great companion to Shaun's memoirs, Diary of a Bookseller and Confessions of a Bookseller or a standalone laugh for all the bookshop customers!
