Another Country bookstore, Berlin
One of the most wonderful parts of my trip to Germany, Another Country was the epitome of what a bookstore should be. Piles of books that can be lended or purchased, a monthly pot-luck and movie night featuring a projector and VHS player and a owner who clearly breathes literature. Surrounded by half empty wine bottles, a section titled "Evil Books" and dust-filled air, it is people like Sophie that make me love the world all the more. This bookstore was magic.
