Book snobs of the world unite!

There was a great moment in a charity bookshop yesterday when a woman walked in and asked if she could donate some books.

"Would you like these books?" the woman asked of the assistant behind the counter.

Bearing in mind this is a charity shop and they should be grateful for everything they get the answer was fascinating.

As she thumbed through the books on offer the woman behind the counter said "Some of these are alright but you can take the others because they should be sold by a general charity shop."

Talk about a book snob. The reaction on the face of the woman donating the books was something that was worth popping in the shop to see...
