I frequent the book stores. I'm pretty sure some of the employee's at Waterstone's think I'm a stalker. I'm forever perusing the shelves looking for something that calls to me.
Sometimes I just can't help but recommend a book to a stranger near me. If I'm in the Young Adult section and I see a mom and daughter trying to find something, I just can't help speaking up and letting them know about a great book I think they would like. Some of my recommendations have been: Wings by Aprilynne Pike, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Knife by RJ Anderson.
I can't help it. Is that too personal? Probably. I can't help it though. I want them to pick something GOOD! No one has yet to be offended, they tell me I should work there. I think they should tell the manager that.
So have you ever recommended a book to a stranger? What book was it? Has someone been lurking near one of your favorites and you're afraid they will skip by it, so you just HAVE to tell them about it??
I may be the only personal space invading non-employee....but I'm hoping I'm not.
