The Booktrader is the main English language bookshop in Copenhagen. It is located in the Latin District of the center of Copenhagen. For a specialist bookshop it is rather big, perhaps because it has two specialties. Primarily, the shop sells books in English, mainly by English authors. The selection is wide and the ambience is somewhat British. The store also specializes in books on history of art and philosophy. In these fields, the languages vary from English to Danish and German. The sections in both specialties are good.
Arnold Busck is one of the most popular bookshops in Copenhagen. It is situated on Købmagergade, a side street to Strget and one of the busiest shopping streets in Copenhagen. The University of Copenhagen is nearby, and originally the shop was meant for collegiate literature students. Now it has become public, with a special focus on books on art and architecture. The selection of fiction books is large, too. Once a year this shop has a sale, and though it does get very crowded, it's a great place to pick up a bargain.
