the english-language used bookstore in münchen

The Munich Readery
Augustenstr. 104
80798 München

an ex-patriot new yorker with a north carolinian ex-patriot wife run an incredible bookstore in münchen. the selection is impressive anywhere, and gets doubly so when you realize that we are in the middle of bavaria (bayern) and once outside turkish döner stands and german bier halls are the order of the day.

every shelf had something i recognized and acknowledged as impressive writing. the shop was clean and well-organized. the books were all in respectable condition.

the fellow is a nice guy, too.

next time you're in münchen (munich) trade the book you read on the plane in for a discount on some new, fantastic reads.
