How many times have I found myself looking for english books in Denmark to buy!
I love to curl up with a good book on those cold winter evenings?
I can easily spend an afternoon engrossed in a good book. Now, I personally enjoy fiction and find it easier to get into the lives of fictional characters than those of non- fictional. I do enjoy non-fiction, but it seems to take more concentration and sometimes history is just a bit too depressing.
The problem with being an english speaking expat is finding books to read in English. I can read Danish, but it is more work than relaxation. I read Danish books when I want to work on my language and reading skills. So when I want to relax, I do so with a book written in my native language. Don't you?
Books in Denmark are not cheap -- usually about 100-150 kroner for a new paperback and about 60 kroner for a good used one. That is not to say you can’t find them cheaper – it is just harder.
Below are some ideas for finding books in Denmark without having to pay ridiculous bookstore prices!
So instead of worrying about the rain, snow and cold winds of winter, pick up a good book and wile away the hours and enjoy life in Denmark.
There are many places to find english books in Denmark. You can start by visiting the new and used book stores in your area. Copenhagen, Arhus, Aalborg and Odense all have large university populations, which helps stimulate the need for english books, more so than in other parts of the country. Most of them do stock some English novels.
Next try looking at some of the auction style sites in Denmark.
Auction sites outside of Denmark are also good, especially if you buy in bulk and get bulk shipping.
Other places to sort your books are:
Remember, when buying anything within the EU, you can avoid paying import taxes. Anything from the US or outside the EU will require you to pay import duty, so calculate that into your purchase prices.

Hi, Generally speaking Denmark is very safe and serious crime is more uncommon than in the UK. There is brawling late a night after the bars close in
