Most of us probably spend far too much time in bookstores. So here are a few helpful tips from Book Riot for what NOT to say to booksellers as we meander through the shelves.

Among the best?

“Which books should I have on my dating profile to not seem idiotic, politicized, out of shape or creepy?”

“Does this author still look like her author photo? Or is she tricking me into thinking she’s still attractive?”

“I don’t need help. I’m just figuring out where my book will be shelved once I finish it, get an agent, sell it, and get it stocked here, in this location.”

(We’re all probably guilty of #3, at least a little bit!)
