Book 2/30 | Weird Things Customers Say In Bookstores by Jen Campbell

Book 2/30 | I picked up this book just for my curiosity and it turned out to be such a funny, easy read. There are times you would wonder about the bizarre things customers ask and truly I have a new found respect for booksellers now. Here's one of the many hilarious conversations from the book:

Customer: Do you have any books containing passages which would be suitable to read out at a funeral? 

Bookseller: Sure, I'll help you look. 

Customer: Thanks. 

Bookseller: And I'm sorry for your loss. 

Customer: Oh, don't worry about it; it's just my daughter's guinea pig.

Book 1/30 | Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Book 1/30 | Big Magic is a book for those who want to lead a creative life. As simple as that. Anyone who are in need of that much needed nudge, encouragement, permission or inspiration - whatever you call to ultimately do what they want to do. Read a little everyday and it is much easier to appreciate Liz's new perspective. There were so many beautiful sentences in the book that I had to note them down in my journal, to explore my own creative self and in turn have the courage to embrace both my curiosities and fears in equal measure.
