Yesterday we went bookshopping in Berlin. We prefer to read our books in English. And although Amazon is great it is so much nicer if you can actually feel and see the books you want to buy.
Potsdam has a nice shoppingarea in the old center but most German bookstores don´t have a lot of English books.
So every now and then we go to Berlin because there is a bigger choice and well, it´s a good excuse to enjoy the walk through the old streets with beautiful houses and to have a drink on a terrace and watch the other tourists.
First stop was the Savignyplatz bookstore. I can spend hours there...lots of books on art, architecture and travelbooks (my favorites).
Then a walk in the rain to the Kurfurstendam. To be honest this street is not my thing. I know as a tourist it is a must see for all the posh shops like Chanel, Louis Vuitton and their likes. But I only like it in December when all the trees are lit and it looks like a fairytale.
I prefer the little shops in Prenzlauer Berg area. I like the atmosphere much better. The old houses, the benches on the streets where you can have a coffee and all the vintage shops.
This one is especially for Jane, the boss of the Corner View gang. ;)
On our way back to the car I discovered this little dog shop, with a whole wall of dog collars!
Now I probably spend the rest of my day travelling the blogland to watch all the corner views. A girl has to do what a girl has to do....
(Such a good excuse to neglect the house (and husband ooops) for another day.)
