The English Bookshop is an exclusively English language bookshop, here you also find Scandinavian literature in english. Our lovely bookshop in Stockholm SOFO, Sodermannagatan 22, is jampacked with exciting books, relaxing chairs and a dedicated staff. We who work here have never outgrown the voracious reading of our youth and our customers are all passionate readers too.

The English Bookshop is my personal favorite in Stockholm.

transformed from a rather quiet residential area into
the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became
