I love to visit used bookstores when I’m traveling, it’s usually always on my to-do list. It is getting a bit hard to find them though and that’s a crying shame. My favorite used books stores are jam packed to the rafters, with precarious piles strewn hither and yon, and the owner manning the register knowing exactly where to lay his hands on any requests you may have.
I found all that at Capitol Hill Books in Washington, DC.
Located near Eastern Market, this bookstore was opened in 1991 but it seems like it’s been around a lot longer than that…just look at all these lovely books!
And what’s even more amazing is that they are actually shelved by subject and in alphabetical order to boot! Wowzeer, my kind of bookstore!
I didn’t find anything this trip, but it sure was fun looking and I can’t wait to go back!
