The following conversation took place during my bookselling days:
Thirty-ish female customer:Do you have that trashy book everyone’s reading?Me:Fifty Shades of Grey? Oh, yeah. It’s right over here.[Leads customer to the offending book and hands it to her.]Here you go…[Pauses awkwardly thanks to the “personal storytelling” angle of the store.]We actually have a Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal going on this week, too, if you’re interested in reading the whole trilogy.Customer:Oh, there’s three of them? [Flips the cover.] Hunh. Have you read it?Me:[blushes] No, no. Not yet… But my mom has and she said it was fun. It’s really popular. I think it’s everyone’s mom’s favourite book right now.Customer:[LOLs] That’s why I checked the “Romance” section first. [Peeks inside.][Beat. Weird eyebrow-raise look. Glances at the cover again.]Can I get this on my Kobo?
