Re: Writing Spaces & Places
I have found a variety of places in Copenhagen that provided writing spaces for my project. I just wanted to document some of these. In descending order: Lion's Book Cafe, my favorite, the most traditional cafe/bookstore. Luckily 90% of the books are in Danish which prevents me from getting distracted; the Christianshavn Bibliotek (the public library branch) is just around the corner from where I live. I was able to get a library card but only about 5% of their books are in English; Cafe Wilder (website doesn't work), Cafe Oven Vande, Cafe Luna, and Cafe Bizarro are actually restaurants but they don't mind people writing and using their laptops between breakfast, lunch and dinner service. Finally, Arnold Busck, a bookstore with a cafe and unfortunately an English language book section that includes a whole mystery section--my favorite.
