    How To Kill, To Kill A Mockingbird, Part 2

    | United Kingdom | Books & Reading

    (I find a young customer looking a little lost in the nature section.)

    Me: “Can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I’m looking for a book about killing birds.”

    Me: “Killing birds?”

    Customer: “Yeah, I need it for school.”

    Me: “Do you mean To Kill a Mockingbird, by any chance?”

    Customer: “Yeah that’s it! Do you have it?”

    (I take him to the classics section and show him the book.)

    Me: “You know, its not actually about killing birds.”

    Customer: “What?”

    Me: “It’s about social injustice in 1930′s America.”

    Customer: “Oh. That doesn’t sound as much fun. Do you have any books about killing birds?”

    Me: “I hope not.”
