Copenhagen bookstore jaunt

Before exploring the independent bookstores, usually I like to start by visiting the biggest and most popular ones, just to get a glimpse on the popular titles at the current moment. My first visit was Arnold Busck, located in Købmagergade, a side street to Strøget, the most populat tourist area. This bookstore has an American bookstore feel, with wood and green interior and signage, similar to Borders and Starbuck’s. Therefore I only spent a few minutes here, browsing all 3 floors within 10 minutes. There is a small cafe, Baresso by the corner, where customers can sit facing the window, enjoying their books and people-watch.

The Bookshop is located in a 3 floor building and it has been a central part of the city atmosphere since the beginning of the 1900s. Here, you can find a great assortment of books on arts, architecture and photography, interesting books on food and wine, as well as children’s books, audio books, tourist guides and maps. You will also find a wide range of literature in the Danish language as well as English and many many other. Also, there is a famous coffee bar called Baresso on the second floor of the building.

I wish to be the girl who sit by the window sill, watching the passerby while reading and sipping coffee on such a glorious sunny day
