Happy Midsummer

UPPSALA & STOCKHOLM

Happy midsummer weekend to all of you! We at the bookshop will be taking a few days off to read some long-anticipated books – but we’ll be back again after the Midsummer festivities.

After the weekend, we’ll be open 7 days a week all summer! So no need for you to suffer from a lack of page turners, isn’t that great?

As always, feel free to ask us for our best recommendations! Our motto is ”the right book, in the right hand, at the right time” – and we have more than ten thousand books to choose from right now.

Sweet Midsummer Night’s Dreams to all of you!
the festive bookshop crew in Uppsala and Stockholm
