5 Berlin books (and a mag) for the holidays
Christmas lockdown: What better time to read – and give something to read? A few Berlin suggestions. In English, naturally.
Berlin-So, it's going to be a lockdown Christmas. What better time to kick back with some entertaining, stimulating prose?

One more thing: Although in book shops will remain open during the lockdown beginning 16 December, it may be tempting to order books via that website named after a South American river.

It's all German, but you'll manage!
