Dieters Calling Libraries Requesting Non-Existent Books

Mary Ellen writes

LIBRARIANS in the United Kingdom were troubled recently by requests from customers for diet books that don’t exist.

Dieters in the area were asking for books such as ‘Now You Can Eat All The Pies and Lose Your Bum while Sitting On It’.

The mystery deepened as more and more customers requested equally strange titles.

Librarians could not understand why so many customers were asking for books that have never been published.

But a sharp-eyed staff member found a clue when she spotted an advert in a woman’s magazine.”
