Howzit by you and your job as a professional shopper, M'Dear Maxine? Have you found deep satisfaction and equally deep-pocket remuneration in your new endeavour? No one's complained about your weird recommendations, yet, I hope? (After all, Trepanning for Beginners seems rather mild compared with some of your subsequent suggestions; I mean, how many people actually took Henry Gee's Night Before Xmas to the checkout? It's a hilarious parody, I agree; however, that bit about the one-legged girrafe might put the kiddies off such creatures in the future, don't you think?)
Well, before you're fired, I suggest you quit that job and consider the benefitz of becoming a Professional Book-Club Commandeer or, as Joanne Kaufman describes your new calling in her report on Book Club Trubs in The New York Times, you could become an excellent "Professional Book-Club Facilitator" and, yes, I believe you would be able to tactfully tackle any Ayatollahs who stood between a good book and its willing readers.
Do enjoy your new position; and, if all works well for you, please to let us know that you've taken to your new penthouse in NottingHill with aplomb and clotted cream. Of course, I do have only your best interests at heart here; and, no longer will you have to force yourself to browse aisles and miles of books (with or without a pedometer).
Undeniably, Your Placement Agent
SNAFUBAR REDUX PROUDUCTIONS™
p.s. I suggest you begin by recommending every club read Jennifer R's new novel (and, if that works for you, you might see your way clear to snagging a promo copy for you know who :))
