"Bleiben Sie Buchleser!"

Sign on stack of books in a store window, announcing closing of store (in German)
I was sad to find this sign in the window of a little used bookstore on Berlin-Friedrichshain’s Niederbarnimstraße, where we used to look in regularly. We often found oddities, treasures and gifts there, in recent years priced by the kilo: a volume of Grzimek’s encyclopedia of animals that inspired us to buy the whole set; a beautiful hand-colored print of a hummingbird for a friend.
Dear customers! The used book store will close on May 1, 2014. I have enjoyed selling books to you, holding interesting conversations and getting interesting feedback. That’s over now and I will miss it very much. Keep on reading! —Anette Wargowske
We will miss you too.
