You walk into this slick little store, browse the extraordinary array of international magazines on politics, fashion, art, design, film, music etc., try not to step on the feet of the 10 other magazine addicts doing the same while you nibble at a juicy apple that was offered to you at the counter.
It’s Saturday afternoon, you’re having a wonderful time, but dammit you can’t find that underground Hong Kong skateboarding ‘zine you’re looking for. Now what? Instinct tells you to forget about it, to walk away without bothering to ask the probably unhelpful, apathetic grump behind the counter. Wrong, these guys ain’t your average Berlin newsagents (no Lotto!). They’re friendly, speak English and are even open to suggestions! They’ll order anything you wish, will look it up on the Internet and might even add it to their regular selection. And yes, this store is in Berlin!
