If you are new in town and you are looking for a great place to start writing, no matter if it’s a Berlin-blog or your first novel, I would recommend you to check Shakespeare and Sons at Warschauer Straße 74. The combination of a good coffee, fresh bagels and international selection of inspiring books leaves nothing to desire. Next time you order a coffee (or two or three) at Shakespeare and Sons to browse the books, to chat with your friends or to write another blog post about being and time (and love, of course), make a note. Get a Berlin Notebook too!
Do you know the greenest stationery shop in Berlin? Polly Paper at Gipsstraße (Mitte) offers a broad selection of environmentally friendly paper goods and writing tools. If you like little independent stationery shops with friendly, relaxed atmosphere you will definitely love Polly Paper. We are very happy to see Berlin Notebook being part of Polly’s finest eco-design selection!
If you are in Schillerkiez in Neukölln and you are looking for inspiration stop by at Buchhafen. Buchhafen is a wonderful small independent bookshop with finest selection of English, Turkish and German literature, reflecting the cultural richness of the neighborhood. If you are tired of reading the news about Turkey then I would strongly recommend you to have a look at their well-kept collection of contemporary and modern Turkish Literature & books on Turkey (in original as well as English and German translation). Buchhafen is also part of the initiative “Neuköllner Buchläden gegen Rechtspopulismus und Rassismus” https://www.facebook.com/neukoellner.buchlaeden.gegen.rass…/
And if you are already there get a Berlin Notebook too – you will support not only this wonderful independent bookshop but also our own cultural project.
See you at Buchhafen!
If you like to sing along The Boomtown Rats hit “Tell my why I don’t like Mondays” then you probably shouldn’t visit the bookstore Montag (“Monday”) in Pappelallee. Because then, I’m pretty sure, you will wish that each day would be Monday! Join us celebrating the third anniversary of this wonderful bookstore which was, by the way, awarded by the German Bookstore Award 2017 last week: https://www.facebook.com/events/157287271490818/.
Or just stop by when passing Pappelallee on Monday or Tuesady or when ever you want. Get a cup of coffee, browse through the finest selection of books and, of course, don’t forget to stock up on Berlin Notebook!
There are no better places to discover new books than independent book stores. If you love books, come to Disko at Florastraße 37 and you will definitely find something you were not looking for. And you can stock up on Berlin Notebooks too!
See you at the Disko – the best independent bookstore in Pankow.
