Always good to know you can go spend some free time browsing some books in your own language, in a foreign country, its reassuring. Plus, the owners are very knowledgable and friendly people.

thank you so much for your help! I had a very bad tooth ache and you lent me some scissors to cut the package open, no questions asked. I know it doesn't sound like much but that day it meant the world to me.
