The Berlin Book Nook

NEW!! We are excited to announce that we are opening a third shop. The former Kneipe (traditional German pub) at Antwerpenerstr. 46a in Wedding (near Seestr. Ubahn) is now the The Berlin Book Nook - The Read Easy. The location had stood empty and unused since the late 1990's. We have spent the last few months undertaking essential renovations without weakening its intrinsic charm and cosiness (or Gemuetlichkeit, as they say in German): with no electricity, this interior is illuminated solely by daylight, candlelight - and, of course, by the wisdom contained in its expanding collection of used English books (all searchable on the online catalogue).

NEW!! Our Braunschweigerstr. 66 branch is now open until 11pm every weeknight.


If you're a book-lover with some time to while away, why not come and see us at The Berlin Book Nook? We can be found at Pfluegerstr. 63 ("The Pearl"), Braunschweigerstr. 66 ("The Tea Room"), both in Neukoelln, and Antwerpenerstr. 46a ("The Read Easy"), in Wedding.
Braunschweigerstraße 66

Our circa 15,000 collection of second-hand, English-language titles covers a wide range of fiction and non-fiction genres, including the classics, literature in translation, detective fiction, modern literary fiction, women's fiction, sci-fi, travelogues, history, memoirs, cultural theory, philosophy, gardening, cookery - and a great deal more. 

Pflügerstraße 63

We also have an expanding collection of children's books, suitable for kids who are learning to read and those who already love reading. Most of these are at the Pflügerstraße shop.

The Berlin Book Nooks are cosy and stylish (if we do say so ourselves!). We have good lighting (important for reading!) and very comfortable seating.

Fiction paperbacks normally cost between 5 and 7 euro, fiction hardbacks between 5 and 12 euro, non-fiction between 5 and 15 euro. We also have some rarer/older books that are more expensive. We accept payment by cash and debit/credit card.

We look forward to seeing you at Pflügerstraße 63, Braunschweigerstraße 66, or Antwerpenerstr. 46a. Nearest U-Bahn stations are Schönleinstraße and Hermannplatz for Pflügerstraße, Neukölln for Braunschweigerstraße, and Seestr. for Antwerpenerstr.
