This is another one of our book stores, Hugendubel. Like Thalia, it is a chain, but much smaller. Hugendubel runs twenty odd shops and an online store as well. However, it is only one part of a bigger corporation.
Fiction and non fiction

The one thing that will always stick with me is the fact that Hugendubel was the first shop I ever saw that offered seats and sofas where people could read books in the shop without having to buy them first. That must have been at the end of the eighties in their shop in Munich (I suppose it was their first shop, too). When I went in there and saw those little reading spots I was stumped. A bookshop where you could actually sit down and read? Unheard of at the time! Nowadays this is common, at least in the big shops, but at the time, Hugendubel was cutting-edge.
