MARKTKOST: THE SEASONAL, REGIONAL TEAM LUNCH DELIVERED RIGHT TO YOUR OFFICE

Awaiting you at Leseglück, the bright and cozy bookshop on Kreuzberg’s Ohlauer Straße, is the friendly smile of co-owner Eleni Efthimiou and the rich, tempting smell of coffee. The shop’s name translates as “joy in reading”, perfectly capturing its atmosphere, with space for browsing and reading and helpful advice on hand so you can find a book for every occasion. Eleni’s dream of having her own bookshop was realized in 2007 when she met co-founder Susan Pfannstiel by chance. When they first opened the shop their focus was on contemporary fiction and German and English novels, but as the neighborhood became more family orientated, demand for children’s and young people’s literature grew. In addition to keeping young readers supplied, Eleni has been holding regular readings and literary events including at Festsaal Kreuzberg (hosting the likes of entertainer Rocko Schamoni) and Fahimi Bar at Kotti (with Thorsten Nagelschmidt’s “Nagel mit Köpfen”). Most recently she has been offering her book recommendations over the airwaves on Radioeins. (Text: Nike Wilhelms / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)
