It’s the weekend! What better to do during the weekend than visiting bookshops you’ve never been to before? Right, nothing. So, when we were in Bad Harzburg this weekend I decided to visit the local bookshop: Buchhandlung Hoffmann.
Not a very inspiring name and as I first passed it after closing time, not a particularly inviting one. However, the next day, it looked a bit different. Two benches and a suit case had been placed outside of the shop with books in/on them. I decided to give it a go, showing an interior that was exciting.
Besides a large selection of German books, there was a selected of (not well-known) English novels, some Young Adult and Children’s books, as well as a large selection of second hand books in the back of the shop, which is hidden at first glance.
I loved the atmosphere in the shop, brought about by so many different kinds of book ends. Each shelf had been decorated by a couple. From very stylish ones, to books ends designed for children, there was something for everyone.
If you ever find yourself in Bad Harzburg, I can definitely recommend you check it out.
Of course I couldn’t leave without buying a book. I’m now the proud owner of (while scaring other people away): Psychopathinnen (Female Psychopaths) by Lydia Benecke.
