At Leeswamme’s blog I put up a picture of our local (or rather one of our local) bookstores for the Book bloggers abroad event. Today I want to share some more pictures that didn’t appear in that blog post. Just because I love that shop.
The bookstore belongs to a chain called Thalia that runs over 230 bookstores in Germany and also has an online shop. It has 4 stories, a huge section of English books, tons of audio books and also sells all those nifty accessories around books, like pillows to place your book in your lap on, cook book holders, book stands, bookmarks, book covers with book quotes on them etc. When they have a theme week, like a specific country or topic, they put up lovely decorations revolving around that theme.

Kids books and YA
Audio books for kids and playground in the back
In the esoteric book section they sell incense sticks, there is a little fountain in the middle of the area, you can sit on nice chairs looking outside, it’s all very cosy and makes it hard to leave the shop without buying anything.
In the audio book department there are comfy leather sofas and a lot of devices to listen to the books. If you feel like having something to drink you can go to the coffee shop on the third floor and get yourself a drink to either take away or enjoy right there.

As you probably can imagine, going there is never boring.
