I love to read and I always buy books faster than I can even read. But why buy new books when there are so many used ones that need a new owner?
Bücher-Brocky is located on Länggassstrasse, just outside the city centre. The bookstore is very large and has everything your heart desires — from biographies, cookbooks and non-fiction, to esotericism and children’s books. Right at the entrance, you can find a huge selection of English books. The browsing is accompanied by classical music, which can be heard softly in the background.
My personal highlight is the shelf with books about old poems and verse. Some of the little jewels are so old that they are written in old German. I even discovered one from the 19th century! Personal dedications, notes and bookmarks of the previous owners are untouched and give the books that certain something.
In Bücker-Brocky I can rummage, read and relax for hours. The great thing is that you will come across exciting books you didn’t know existed or surprisingly find the book you have been looking for for years.
