Second Story Books: what do users think?


Jereth Tolentino: You can definitely get stuck inside this place for hours if you’re in to rare books. The staff is great and very helpful. Love the location and the building. I will definitely be coming back every time im in the area.

James Bacon: Excellent used bookstore. They know their books and have sections for modern 1st editions as well as ample SF, Lit and of course history and politics. Really enjoyed the browse. Some lovely finds.

Alejandro Nuñez-Jimenez: Great second hand bookshop. They have a very large selection of titles, covering a wide range of topics. Very well organized shelves that make it easy to find what you're looking for. If you still don't, just ask the staff, they were very helpful. I particularly enjoyed the considerable amount of science and economics books, which had some titles outside of the usual suspects. 4/5 stars because the pricing is a bit higher from other physical and online stores.

Angelica Oung: This bookstore had a superb collection of both books you been meaning to read, waiting for you to discover, and are just curious to flip through. The perfect selection of old and newer, with a few antique titles to give it that authentic ambiance. It has the perfect use bookstore smell. Prices are reasonable. Please treasure this place and keep it alive for many years to come.

Eddies: I've been here many times over the years and have yet to come across staff that did not act smug when approached. Last time will be the end of my relationship. I entered under the assumption that since the mask mandate was lifted long ago this establishment was following the path of most other establishments and not mandating masks. As I was browsing around I approached a staff member and began asking her a question (from a distance of about 10 feet mind you). She interrupted me mid-sentence and said "do you have a mask" in a stern tone. I said, oh I didn't realize I needed one. She pointed to some masks near the door. As I was placing the mask on I noticed that she and a male who had been working on a computer had stopped what they were doing and were glaring at me as if I had just committed an atrocity or was an alien from outer space. Between that reaction and her tone in interrupting me (without so much as an apology or simple "excuse me") turned me off. I left and won't be back. The issue here isn't the mask policy it's the pattern of encountering smug employees. I don't "need" to do business here, especially with a store that acts like they are doing me a favor by allowing me in. Plenty of other options out there. I very much like to support local independent business but respect and appreciation go both ways.

Gabriel Nicolosi: Books are overpriced. They also sell extremely overpriced prints as if they were actually art pieces. I frequently buy old and vintage prints online and in auctions and I can tell you those prices are to fool the regular consumer. Also, they like old stuff so much that they still require masks inside the store. I just went inside because my wife wanted a book. Convinced her to leave after 2 minutes and bought the book online. Done with the face diaper.

Gica Mangahas: Great collection of secondhand books. Nice sociology/social concerns and US domestic politics sections. Decent world affairs and regional studies sections, though for more niche topics you'd be better off visiting the giant Rockville location.

JXG JXG: A fairly good selection of books but TERRIBLE customer service, downright rude most of the time. A customer will ask for a book and there will be three or four employees behind the counter but only on rare occasions will anyone actually assist the customer find what they're looking for. And their banter is overwrought sophomoric drivel, and they never shut up!

Amanda Blake: Very cool place! They have some impressive first editions and original or signed works, ranging from books to maps to posters. They also have standard used books, although they seem to lean toward vintage. It's a great place to duck into and look around. They have arrows and mask requirements right now for covid.

HorrorJunky 4 Life: I love the selection of new & used books that are sold here. The isles are a little narrow which makes for a tight squeeze when trying to pass other customers. They also have a nice selection of DVDs. The books being sold on the the sidewalk are a great deal at 4 for $20. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Capitol Hill Books: what do users think?


Da-Wang Wu: This little bookstore was definitely a hidden gem. Walking in it feels like a treasure hunt that you don’t know what you are going to find. I enjoyed visiting it! However, I was a bit surprised that the book I bought here was like 2x price than online bookstore… Also, the staff was definitely not in a good mood that day, making some conversations a bit awkward. Overall, I’m fully supportive to independent bookstores and might consider recommending it to others.

ghe rahadi: Glad I found this place! Quite organize, sorted by the book genre so you can easily find your desired literature. The counter lady is nice and friendly..

Brian Hagan: Such a cool used bookstore in DC! Staff was super friendly. Space is cozy so be prepared to squeeze between rows of books. They have 3 floors of books which includes the upstairs and basement. Loved checking this place out!

Hans-Martin Ishida: Best bookstore in the city. Amazingly wild and eclectic collection of used books plus a good variety of new releases. Many of the new releases are also relevant and topical to the social justice issues in the US and DC today.

Monique Johnson: I really enjoyed browsing here some warm days after work on my way home. It’s that kind of place. You go when you’re looking and when you’re not. They will always have some thing you might like. I’d recommend

John O'Connor: Capitol Hill Books has to be one of the best DC gems. Their social media is wicked smart, and their store is a staple of the neighborhood. For anyone who calls DC home, this place is a must.

Joseph S.: Great selection of books and the man who runs/owns it is pretty cool. Store is setup in a really unique way as well.

Sarah McBurney: Enjoyed looking at the great variety of used and new books. Was a small and intimate location. The upstairs fiction section was great and well organized. Wish I could have spent more time there.

Joseph Kerski: I love this store. I wish I could live there ! Thank you all. Even geography books in the basement !

Bruce Lowther: interesting hole in the wall book store. great book summaries in inserted in some of the books. lots of interesting titles. prices are a bit high but that’s very likely due to the location.

The Lantern Bookshop: what do users think?


Jake Layman: Drove through thick DC traffic to visit this store during its stated business hours but naturally they are closed. Thanks for wasting my time and gas money.
Response: So sorry, Jake! We are entirely run by volunteers and, during the summer, often have to reduce our hours due to a shortage of weekday availability. I'll make sure to check our hours on Google and make sure they are current. We hope you will forgive us and make a return visit one day!

Irene James: I am so incredibly happy to have found this gem in Georgetown. What a lovely, lovely store! SO many interesting books, the prices are amazing, and the people there are the nicest, sweetest people ever. I cannot wait to go back, honestly I might go back tomorrow and the next day and the next. If you're a book addict, you simply must go to The Lantern Bookshop. I loved my visit there today.
Response: Thank you!!

Maurielle C: Lots of good finds in here! Unfortunately I didn’t purchase anything but even looking inside was a treat. The books are in extremely good condition and the store is nicely laid out. The women working were very cautious with COVID - much appreciated. They ensured that each customer apply hand sanitizer via the sanitizing station upon entry of the store. Super cute & truly you can find rare books here.
Response: Thank you so much! You never know what you'll find in our little jewel box of a shop

Sara Boyer: I am an avid book collector but I am not a fan or places that are too high priced that no one can afford their books. This is not one of those places! I found a large assortment of lovely new and used books as really good prices. I talked to the owner and most books are either donated or ones that they find and she uses the money for scholarships for woman college students at Bryn Mawr College! What a great place!
Response: SO glad you came in and found some goodies!!!

Gina Beckman Wright: The lady working the store is rude and unwelcoming. Came in ten minutes before the store was closing and as soon as we walked in she said "ah we're closing so unless there's something specific you want, you should just turn around and walk out." Nothing special about the store either, came in a time before and it's mostly newer used paperback books, was expecting something cute and old, with rare books, definitely not the case. Not worth an out of the way stop.
Response: We were not open three days ago (check our website for current hours) and we have an extensive selection of hardbound and older, as well as newer, books. Could you be describing a different place?

Michael Dirda: The Lantern is a cozy and eclectic bookshop, and well worth a visit, but for those of us who don't live in Georgetown, its hours make this difficult. During the week it closes at 4 PM on the days it is open. I realize that it is run by volunteers, but longer hours--ideally into the early evening--would be a great encouragement to customers. For instance, I have an event at Georgetown University Library on Thursday at 6 and thought I might visit the bookshop beforehand. But this isn't really workable, given the early closing at 4. Sigh. --md
Response: Yes, it's definitely a problem, and we understand the frustration. A lot of our volunteers are older and/or come in to Georgetown from a distance away, so getting home in the dark and rush hour is not really viable for them. We have later hours in December on Fridays, which are popular nights.

Rashid Darden: The Lantern is a decent bookstore, but the section with African American interest has dramatically decreased in size over the years. All in all, an okay store with friendly staff.
Response: The problem is, those books get snapped up very quickly, so it's hard to maintain stock in that category, since our books are all donated. Its nice that there's such demand, though!

Tracy Acheampong: Very nice community bookstore. Most books are under $5 and the selection changes every time I visit. It's worth a stop inside.
Response: Thank you!

Melinda Madden: The classic charm of a stuffy, quiet book store. A quiet spot to get away from the buzzing streets of Georgetown.

Bryce Jahner: What an awesome find! Great selection of carefully curated books. Fantastic spot to browse while on a walk.
Response: So glad you found us - come back soon!

Lost City Books: what do users think?


Hanna Foreman: Great bookstore in Adams Morgan with a wide range of books to choose from in an eclectic building. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The mask policy at the store makes me feel a lot safer. Highly recommend joining the events at the store because they bring in great writers and moderators. Only gripe is that the selection on area studies books is a little limited.
Response: Thanks for the kind words Hanna!

Mark Rhoades: The best book store my wife and I have ever been to. There is a huge variety of books, and the the staff picks always lead to me great books I would have looked over otherwise. We always leave with a stack of books; they also have a surprisingly large selection of Japanese authors that I haven’t found elsewhere.
Response: Thank you so much Mark!

Angus Bennion: It’s a well-organized local bookstore with very friendly staff.

pev vas: Very nicely organized Bookstore in the heart of the thriving Adams Morgan neighborhood. It has both new and gently used books and a great selection of the classics. Staff is friendly and it is a great atmosphere for book lovers to browse. It is a must stop every time I visit that neighborhood, and I don't even live in the area.

Ethan Vose: This place was very well organized and probably one of my favorite book stores I've visited. They had very niche topics and categorized very specifically so everything was really easy to find. Prices weren't bad either.
Response: We appreciate the kind words Ethan!

Rachel McCaffrey: Such an amazing bookstore! I love the mixture of new and used and the great prices!
Response: thank you!!!

Hwa Shi-Hsia: Great selection of new books mixed with used books in good condition, many vintage editions. Dedicated science fiction room. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
Response: Thank you!

HorrorJunky 4 Life: This store has been in the Adams Morgan area for over 30 years. They sell a variety of used books for half off the price listed on the cover. Cook books, fiction like mysteries & horror, children's books and rare books are located on the first floor. Craft, science fiction and history are located on the 2nd floor. They take credit cards but I think the minimum to use them is $5. They also sell greeting cards, book marks and a few magazines and records.

Stephanie Barrett: I always check Lost City before ordering anything online, if they don't have it in stock, they can order for you...support your local bookstore! Besides, it's just such a charming and lovely place to browse. Bonuses: lots of book club events and deep discount racks out front, plus fun and local cards, prints, etc.
Response: Thank you so much!!!

Patrick Carey: Is there anything better than a local , independent bookstore? Incredibly friendly staff and a great selection of books (organized in very helpful categories). Highly recommend!

Reston's Used Book Shop: what do users think?


A Mac: Nice, cozy book store but very pricey.

Sam S: A very serene place to peruse for some books. Also, a great place to bring old books to trade in for either cash or store credit (note: must book an appointment). The variety here is impressive. They even have a section on the local history of the area. The owners/employees are about as nice as they come.
Response: Thanks Sam for the complements and we agree that our staff are great. They love books and they love working at RUBS.

Tilly Lo: The location of this bookstore on Google Map is incorrect, but I just submitted the correction. This Used Book Shop is located next to Kalypso, to the right when you are facing the entrance of Kalypso Restaurant. Because of the incorrect location, I called the bookstore, and the lady who answered the phone was so helpful, polite and friendly. She guided me to where the store is located, and she was so welcoming. I was looking for some old VC Andrews and newer James Patterson (JP) hardcover books. Unfortunately, they didn't seem to have any VC Andrews books, but it is understandable because these books are very old. She did have some JP hardcover books, but I already have them. I collect JP books. Majority of the books in there appears to be paperback, but they do have some hardcover. Finding what you want can be a hit or miss. I suggest visiting the store regularly if you are looking for something particular. I explored the bookstore since I had some time, and I found some interesting books. This bookstore pretty much hax everything: How-To, Arts and literature, non-Fiction, Fiction, bibles of various religions, children books, etc... Their prices are somewhat high, I thought, but given the rent and other expenses, it is understandable. Paperbacks are 50% off the retail price, and the price for the hardcover books written is in the upper right corner inside the book. I checked a few of the prices, and it seems like the hardcover books are priced at less than 50%. For a typical hardcover fiction books, the ones I looked at was around $10 or $15. There was a $85 book that was priced at $35. Just to give you an idea. The condition of the books varies, but they are in pretty good used condition - not falling apart type. Occasionally, there would be one that looks or is brand new. If you are looking to save some money, I do recommend checking out this little bookstore and support small businesses. If you are financially challenged, I recommend checking the book sale section at the local library and the local thrift stores. I did after leaving this bookstore, and found 2 hardcover books at the thrift store for $2.59 each plus tax. I was so happy considering one of which is released not too long ago, a James Patterson book that would have cost me over $10 on eBay or $16 at Costco.

Arpan Shah: Very exciting to see this nice used book shop with great collection of books and very reasonable pricing. My kids were very excited and pick up a lot of good books to read. Definitely visit it if you are in the neighborhood.
Response: Welcome Arpan and Kids - thanks for the great review!

Toni Airaksinen: Eclectic mixture of used books, some classics, some very old & torn. The store offers children’s books, biography’s, memoirs, cookbooks, history books and much more. In my opinion the selection was small and I didn’t see anything I liked, nevertheless it was quite an adventure to walk through. The staff are super friendly, and they’re eager to help with any questions you may have.

Mike DiSipio: Owner was incredibly rude when we walked in. I didn't bother to stay very long thereafter and get a good sense of the books they had or the prices. Didn't want to spend money on someone who treats strangers and potential customers so poorly right off the bat

Tatiana Cneazev: A small, but cute book shop. We enjoy going there and never left empty handed.
Response: Thanks Tatiana!

Kristen Bert: Great store! Many of the books are in super condition and the prices are good. Store clerk (from Feb 2nd evening) was very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely return.
Response: Thanks Kristen - when did you visit so that we can acknowledge the 'very knowledgeable and friendly staff'

Taylor Wreath: The used book store scene is sadly lacking in Reston but this book shop really makes up for it! With kind staff, amazing finds, and the cozy environment any book store should have, I love coming here. I know there will always be a wonderful book to find.
Response: Wow! Thanks Taylor - really appreciate your review - Susan and Bud Burwell

Suzie S: Horrible experience... when entering store, woman sitting in the front of the store was rude. Very off-putting...will never return. And why do you still require masks? Pathetic!

Olivia S.O: Such a beautiful bookstore with great atmosphere. It was quiet, well organized, and clean inside. Staff was kind and helpful, I love that they greet you at the door. They also seem to really enjoy each other which always boosts the energy. The children’s section is so inviting, if I wasn’t wearing a dress I would’ve sat in the nook and read a book myself— can’t wait to bring my son here. The cafe was a nice touch, I enjoyed my wine while reading in one of the lounge chairs. I left with “The Body Keeps The Score,” and will definitely be back for more.
Response: Thanks for the awesome review, Olivia! We work hard to meet expectations like yours, and we’re happy to hear we hit the mark for you. Come back and see us soon. Cheers!

Katelyn Bodwell: Adorable book store with so many options! They also serve beer and coffee and have a couple seats at the window. The kids section was really cute! They also have some little trinkets and gifts like items to buy.
Response: Thank you! We strive to be a place for the community to shop, have a beverage, work & commune.

Bobbi DeAnda: SUCH A COOL PLACE! The kid section is another level! Our little one didn’t want to leave! We will definitely be back. Also bought one of the coolest books I’ve ever seen - a “photicular” book. Such a great spot!
Response: Thank you so much! We hope to see you again soon.

Chris Atkins: Great bookstore to pick up Dogman books obviously. All around cool place. They have a wide variety of topics and books covered here and it's close to a few coffee shops so you can enjoy a good read and a cup of coffee.

C. Howard: wonderful environment to sit and have a beverage and nibble while reading, or slowly peruse great selections until you're ready to make a purchase. a cozy kids corner makes this spot family friendlier. great staff, friendly, helpful and courteous!

Ashleigh N. DeLuca: This bookstore is small but cozy. I love that you can order beer and wine and they let you walk around and browse the books while you finish your drinks. A lot of charm and a decent selection of drinks.

Anna Brazel: Amazing bookstore but also wonderful community space. We visited while traveling and we were thoroughly impressed by the warmth of the staff and the space overall.
Response: Thank you! Stop by next time you're in DC.

Erik Deckers: A friendly and hip bookstore with a lot of great titles for everyone’s interest. Not one of the mega stores, but just enough to pique anyone’s interest. The coffee is good, the food is good, and it’s a nice place to hang out and relax and read your new purchase over an iced latte.

Tyler R: The selection is okay. Very few essayists represented on their shelves. Lots of bubblegum reads. Great "neo-liberal" titles for D.C. transplants. Performative activists will love this place!

Emily Gunter: Very clean and well thought out. I appreciated the wide variety of offerings including the expansive children's section. I appreciated the ambiance of the space, this it did feel a bit crowded at times with the number of children present.

Justine Sacco: Visited this bookstore for the first time today, and so glad I did! Spacious, bright, and staffed by some lovely, helpful people. I stopped by to pick up a special order (very easily done online) but I'll absolutely be back to browse and buy more. Also, in an optimal location to pick up a book and then enjoy reading it at over a meal at one of several fantastic restaurants nearby.
Response: Thank you for this wonderful review and for posting pictures! We look forward to you coming back to browse and hang out. Happy reading!

Declan Glueck: I always love exploring a new bookstore, and this was well worth the time. It is extremely cute inside, and has a great selection for the size. I appreciated all the hand-written recommendation notes, and ended up buying two books I've been looking for. Give them a visit if you're in the area!
Response: Thanks for shopping with us, and thank you for the lovely review! I hope you can come again soon.

Michael Lawrence: I interacted with at least 4 booksellers at East City and each one was so welcoming & thoughtful. I would say this is the best "customer service" I've experienced in a bookstore, but I don't love that phrase. I was treated as a person by other wonderful people, and I encourage others to experience this store's selection and curation. Thank you East City!!
Response: Thank you so much for your review, Michael! I can’t tell you how much this means to me and the whole staff. This is what we love about our jobs—all the wonderful people we get to meet and talk books (and other things) with. We love our community of customers and we hope to see you again soon!

Ashleigh N. DeLuca: This is my favorite bookstore in DC! I go out of my way to stop by this bookstore whenever I’m in town. They have a smart layout which utilizes their small space well. It makes the bookstore look much bigger and doesn’t feel crowded or cramped. They have a great selection of books and their staff are all so knowledgeable and friendly. Throughout the bookstore you’ll see little green cards on the bookshelves which include the staff’s thoughts on specific books. I think this is such a fun idea and I love to spend half my browsing time just reading what the cards say. There is a certain charm that this bookstore has that none of the other DC bookstores have.
Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review! Thanks for shopping with us, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Laura Delgado: Cute & calming bookshop with a good selection, and lots of recommendations which is helpful, as well as reasonable prices. I found English/Spanish children books, and plenty of fiction & cookbooks that were very interesting.
Response: Thank you so much, Laura! We hope to see you again soon.

Bilal Rahmani: For such a socially conscious bookstore this place is oddly hyper focused on white women's guilt towards black women.. then no books at all about any of the incredibly problematic military objectives abroad. I'm sorry, this place felt like a shallow attempt to be woke. At least Toni Morrison made it to the bottom shelf.

Ren Jax: A fantastic find filled with a diverse collection of local writers and national favorites. The staff is very attentive to customers needs willing to suggest finds if needed, or seek out authors. The downstairs space has more choices including graphic novels and other comic books. There is also room for small gatherings to hear readings of works.

Andreana Morris: Have been following one of the book sellers on their tik-tok for a while. Went in and enjoyed ever moment. Got to meet the book seller and they helped my girlfriend and get a bunch of books to read for our after OFMD pirate brain rot. Met other queer folk. Had the best time. Will be back soon.
Response: Thanks for coming in and thanks for this wonderful review--we hope to see you again soon!

Hayley Trezzo: This was one of the most chaotic book stores I've been in. My visit included two dogs barking at each other (blocking the entrance) and a baby crying/screaming for a good five minutes straight (from a massive stroller that taking up a lot of the already cramped space by the registers/stairs). So I guess this place is great for families with young children and dog lovers! But it definitely is not for me. With so many other independent book stores in DC, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit or support this one.
Response: I'm so sorry that you had an unpleasant visit! We do welcome everyone, including people with their leashed dogs and families with strollers. And it can get crowded quickly near the registers. Most of the time it all works and things are calm, but clearly not at that moment. The week before Christmas can turn into momentary chaos very quickly; again my apologies. Enjoy your holidays!

Belle Ellrich: The staff here are super nice and extremely helpful. I live out of state and pre-ordered a book. Due to having ADHD, I forgot to change my address on my pre-order after I moved. They were able to catch my order before it shipped and helped me change the address without extra cost to me, even though I offered to pay for the mistake. They even called to confirm that they had the correct address before it was sent out. Because of this, I highly suggest supporting them and shopping from their bookshop. I will be shopping here again in the future and look forward to my next purchases from their store.
Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review and thank you for shopping with us. We really appreciate it and look forward to helping you again in the future!

Kensington Row Bookshop: what do users think?


Deanne Ollett: Great selection of books and a lot of hole-in-the wall gift items that I didn't know I needed but I've now have made great head way on Christmas shopping. Lots of posters and post cards to sift through and more books in French than I've ever seen in one place.

Alexandra Ng: A lovely book shop with comfortable areas to relax, sit down, and read

Annie Jernigan Goldberg: I love the used bookshop. The woman is very nice. The bookshop has a wide selection of books. They have $1 book sections.

Catherine Nowicki: A one of a kind place. The book store you (or reading kids, teens) would live to cozy up in, buy books and stay! I have been going for years. I also sell books for trade of others. They have amazing posters, cards and unique gifts. You'll want to buy lots of reasonably priced used books and stay!

Margaret Flaherty: This is the best used bookstore in Montgomery County, and one of the best anywhere. Besides being a cozy, colorful and comfortable bookstore, the books are meticulously organized; whatever you're looking for, if they have it, you'll be able to find it. I'm always on the prowl for unusual and interesting art books and I've made many of my best finds in this shop.

Jim Laurenson: Amazing little place, with lots of good and old books. They provided a rapid response to my email search for a specific book, which BTW was successful!

John Daly: This is a very friendly place with a great selection of previously owned books. It is a comfortable place in which to browse, and hosts several book clubs, a chess club as well as being a source for information on Catalan culture. It sits in the Kensington Row surrounded by antique shops, galleries, and restaurants.

Pamela Bookshop: Great for Browsers And for specific books. Carries large and interesting selection of new and used and antique books. History: Civil War, WWI & WWII, African American, Asian, British, Chines, Russian, etc., Law, Politics, Philosophy and Religion. Fiction and non-fiction in paperback and hardback. Literature, Classics, Sci-Fiction & Fantasy, Mystery & Crime, Foreign Language books. Biographies & Memoirs, Business, Cooking, Hobbies, Crafts, Musicians, Childrens and Young Adult. All major credit cards accepted. Easy and free parking on street and St. Paul's church allows parking in their lot on Armory a block from the shop on Howard Avenue in Kensington.

Frank Hopper: A fantastic bookshop. The proprietor is very knowledgeable and there is an area of the shop dedicated to Catalan culture. They hold poetry readings and other events regularly.

Elisa Ferrante: Big fan of this store. It has a great selection of books and the staff is friendly. My only complaint is there is just so much that it's difficult to sort through and find things. You must have lots of patience!

Kelmscott Bookshop: what do users think?


Yasmin Moghadamnia: The place is three floors, all filled with beautifully arranged books, mostly old, but also new. The genres are all clear and the different books live in their own rooms, which I think is super cute. You can get lost in the home of languages for appetizers, then move on to fiction for main course, and finally biographies and memoir and art for dessert. The staff are unbelievably nice and helpful. Besides all of this, there are exotic masterpieces you might come across, like I saw a framed page of an old Persian poem (which is my mother tongue). It was such a bliss.

Keyi Yin: Kelmscott Bookshop's website is accessible and informative, and if you love the Pre-Raphaelites, it is absolutely a location you have to support when you're in Baltimore. They took great care during Covid-19 Era with pick-up and careful deliveries, and are easy to talk to and communicate with. The only thing I am sad about is not being able to visit the Bookstore IRL and see the cats.

Lorena Hogan: Amazing bookstore in Dublin! There are lots and lots of items for all ages. They carry books of all genres that will appeal to most. Customer service is great as well, they are always nice and polite. I love this bookstore and I hope it stays here forever!

Otter Bond: Congratulations on your move. We wish you all the best there and continue to have much love for your shop. Kelmscott is one of the last and very best of its kind! Keep holding in there and being your fine selves! Thank you.

Kati Bosch: They are closed but nothing online indicated this.
Response: Hi Kati - we are not closing. We moved to a new location in Savage, MD on Monday. Our website at kelmscottbookshop.com states this very clearly on nearly every page. We will be opening by appointment starting in August at our new location. We are still working on getting our internet and phone lines up in our new location.

Vesna Dalbelo: Loved it!

Second Story Books: what do users think?


Henri de Corinth: There’s a lot to admire about this place, but my favorite thing by far is that the firearms section is nestled between feminism/women’s studies and Marxism/radical politics. 😎

Ryan Kahn: Extreme false advertising. There's is only ONE story accessible by customers. They also do not sell exclusively sequels or the second in a series. They DO have an incredible variety of literature and works for all ages, as well as great people working there.

Jennifer Jay: Management and staff have gone above and beyond for me multiple times! I’m a professional organizer but often get tasked with staging; my most recent shopping trips there were to replace about 2,000 books a client’s ex took with her. Not only were they helpful but they genuinely seemed to enjoy the gargantuan task! Usually with staging only size, color, and shape matter, but this client actually enjoys their books so content was equally important. It’s been a few months and that client couldn’t be happier. Every book in the photo is from second story! In the end they made three deliveries since it took me 3 trips (this photo is after the second delivery). Delivery is incredibly well priced- only $50 to my client’s location.

Margaret Smith: I was there last week for the first time, doing my used bookstore rounds. They have a massive book collection, a bit organized as each aisle is labeled. My only issue is safety, the aisles are blocked with books and book bins. Several obstruction hazards which can cause customers and employees to trip and get hurt. Also in an emergency there appears to be only one way out and that is the way in. Just like Friends of the Library in Rockville, this is a wonderful bookstore but enter at your own risk.

emilio g: NOTE: As of mid-2021, there are no longer vinyl records for sale here. Apparently it was a consignment lot that is gone. Still, it's a very big used bookstore with an impressive selection. It's also a bit tricky to navigate at times - watch your step.

Shaq: The place has a huge selection but is infuriatingly organized. Don’t come into the store with a list of books you want to find because you won’t find them. Instead, come with an extremely open mind because what you will find is an unbelievable volume of books strewn about in absolute chaos. You likely won’t find what you’re looking for unless you’re looking for random fictions or anything military related. Discard your desire to find anything by notable authors because either somebody else managed to find it first or you’re looking in the wrong place. Come into this store with the understanding that you’ll likely find a book you’ve never heard of by an author you’ve never heard of in a genre that you didn’t think existed. Asking for assistance is useless. They don’t catalog books that have been purchased and are no longer on the shelf. What are you even entering the book information for in the first place if you don’t keep up with the inventory... I don’t know

Anthony Marovelli: This store is like stumbling into the mind of an unstable magician. There’s so much to offer but the organization is haphazard at best. This however is part of the charm. If you’re into books, especially if you’re a student or author, I highly recommend; a regional fixture to be sure. Cheers!

Xena Wilder: This used warehouse bookstore is amazing! I mean it is a warehouse. It isn’t pretty to look at but if you love books this is the place to look! Everything is usually 40% off except for rare books. They often have 50% off on weekends. They have every topic you can think of. You can spend hours there.

D M: Book store with a great selection of books covering all subjects and literature. The employees are courteous and knowledgeable. And prices are very reasonable.

M W: A lot of inventory, but scattered around in an absolute maelstrom of clutter. Hidden rooms and pseudo-vaults, covering a variety of topics, but you'd have a hard time finding quality fiction. Come here if you want biographies written in Gaelic or obscure tomes on various subjects.

Kramers: what do users think?


Jon and Amanda Lewis: Great little bookshop near Dupont Circle. They have a wide selection of titles & subjects and an attached cafe and restaurant. I found some wonderful vintage looking postcards such as a DC cherry blossom one and tried the Kramer’s Goober Pie. So incredible. I would highly recommend this place!

Arun Vishwanathan: Cute little bookstore in DC and you should stop by if in the area. Eclectic collection of titles and journals/calendars They do have a restaurant/diner inside, so you can grab a bite as well if you’re hungry. Wish I had more time to spend there..

Juhi Pac: Great bookstore-bar-restaurant combo right at DuPont circle. Very easily accessible by DuPont circle metro and good selection of books and atmosphere

Cara Forte: I'm really happy this awesome bookstore came recommended by a friend for me to check out while staying in Dupont Circle for a long weekend. The books and gifts are well curated and there is a restaurant in the store with delicious food, drinks, and dessert. The coffee is great, too.

Karen cohen: Helpful staff and a ton of books from every genre! Browsing is part of the fun or going there and see all the books you want to read. Have lunch in the dining area and spend the whole afternoon there. Huge children section,too.

C Luna: Food was fantastic! Especially the cherry blossom cheesecake :) Service was amazing- our waitress was sweet and funny. Definitely a great date spot ❤

John Weber: What a lovely place to look for books and grab a bite to eat! I only walked around the bookstore but from what I could tell, the food both looked and smelled amazing!! On the restaurant side, there are a couple lounge chairs/couches to relax in as well. Definitely stop by and drop in if you are nearby. I was able to park just a block away on a Friday night.

bruce hutson: Kramers. Since 1976, so it’s not new to many, unless you visit from outa town, like we did. Our friends, Bob and Lynn, came here on dates years ago, as many did and still do. Lots of stories within these walls, ups and downs, and today we sat in fleeting sunshine to taste the excellent Kramers Breakfast(tasty potatoes), and the full mouth, comforting Ham Benedict(such creamy Hollandaise). Oh, and the books fairly pulsed into our hands within the well laid out spaces. Feed your body, nourish your soul

M Boone: Good brunch menu with solid pairings. Visit it after strolling through the nearby Farmer's Market. Space inside is a little tight particularly with the kitchen in-the-middle, but cozy nonetheless. I enjoyed the chicken and waffles. Presentation is good. Prices are on par for D.C.

Quarib Chowdhury: This is a Washington DC institution. Everyone should visit, buy a book, and eat at the cafe. I’ve browsed through this place many many times and even bought books and ate at the cafe. I ate at the cafe years ago but remember everything being delicious. As someone with a big sweet tooth, the apple pie crust desert was amazing. The expansion to bring the cafe into the bookstore actually works really well. I’ll have to revisit the cafe next time.

MahoganyBooks: what do users think?


Angel Dove: Ordered a custom sweatshirt online from them back in November and have yet to receive it. I have contacted the store on several occasions (telephone calls, voice messages, and portal messages) in which I spoke to a live person twice. I received unapologetic responses and have been told to expect a call back in 3-5 business days, which never happened. I have had friends who live in the DC area rave about their in store experiences; I only wish that the online service was just as good. After my online shopping experience, I will NOT be ordering from them again.

Rivah Sistah: My Mahogany Books experience was GREAT! Awesome customer service and sooooooo many books to choose from. My daughter and niece who are teens said they want to go back. I will take the trip from VA bs ordering online.

Lorrie Brinson-Arevalo: As a new Author I had an opportunity to fly to DC to visit this awesome Black Owned Bookstore. My 1st but it will not be the last #BlackBooksMatter

Tina R: I checked out this store in person at the National Harbor. The store was beautiful, clean, and well-stocked. I will definitely shop there in-person again. As I like to support black-owned businesses, I am sad to see from the other reviews that their online ordering may not be the greatest system right now. But if you are local and enjoy paper books like me, I recommend them.

Hypnotik Vanity: Awesome BLACK OWNED BOOKSTORE. Excellent customer service. I asked for recommendations and was given two. I took that and purchased both. Ready for my next visit.

Jalan W B: Hubby and I have been meaning to stop by and so glad we did tonight. What a wonderful, intimate community book shop. We left with a bag full of books that Christy, a really nice employee, helped us find for ourselves and a new speculative fiction book by Nnedi Orakorafor book for our school aged son. Highly recommend this community gem. Can’t wait to go back soon! We also got to check out great art installations within and next to the the Anacostia arts center and did some clothes shopping next door.

Ariana Abdulmassih: This place is a scam. I ordered two books from them eight months ago and received various generic emails that they were experiencing delays and they'd be here as soon as possible. After not receiving my books eight months later, I reached out and received an incredibly unapologetic response claiming "the post office lost my books" and they're not liable for that. They would not even provide proof that the books had actually been sent leading me to believe they pocketed the cash and just completely forgot about my order. STAY AWAY from this place and choose any other small business book store to support - they clearly do not care about their customers.

Danielle Watson-Murray: I ordered several books for myself and my family before it was “trending “ to patronize a black owned bookstore earlier this year. Most of the order arrived very quickly. The other portions arrived later and they they kept me updated during the process. I love their virtual book meet and greets with the authors! Overall I will continue to purchase from them and I have already told several of my friends and family members about their great customer service!

Cindy B: Ordered four books online. Communication between me and the store was great! They are doing an awesome job at fulfilling their orders under current circumstances. I did have to wait an additional week or so to receive my full order (and I did!) but I honestly don’t mind waiting as long as it takes. At this point in time, it’s about supporting local businesses and keeping them afloat.

Brian Klein: I was sent a giftcard to support the business which was great. I ordered 3 books with that gift plus a little more. It took weeks to ship and as of this review it has been over 4 months with my third book never shipping. I emailed the store multiple times and have tried calling but still haven't been in contact with them.

Emma Ruehl: Wonderful bookstore with well-curated selection. The store owner is also very kind, welcoming, and helpful. A true gem of Old Town!

Brittany C: Drove out to Alexandria to support a black owned book store on a Tuesday afternoon, only to find them closed. Not sure if they need to update their listed hours or if they’re online only - no one picked up during the times I called to inquire. Will look for another black owned bookstore in the DMV area!

Pj Thomas: If the owner doesn't have it, you don't need it. No, really, Bernard is passionate about the books. This compact store also features a surprising collect of Black art and some featuring the Divine Nine. Also in the store are unique cards and tee shirts. I wish there was space for a coffee bar.

Sausa: A unique and beautiful place. Also there’s a ton of art for sale in there!

Laurice Grae-Hauck: Wonderful selection of books and art. The man working was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend stopping in.

Rashmi Pappu: Friendly owner, good selection of books!

Annastasia Hirt: Really great selection of books and very kind staff. I highly recommend shopping at this local business.

Fanny Mixter: Lovely bookstore, wonderful owner (Mr. Bernard) , great selection of books!! Can’t wait to go back!

Sonlm Wells: A bookstore that has any type of book that you are looking for by Black authors, and outstanding work of arts.

Matthew Miller: Extremely helpful staff, very well informed. Ready with recommendations but not pushy

Mischa: This is a very nice and comfortable cafe with friendly staff, indoor and outdoor seating, and is also a book and video store. The only thing I suggest is getting a recycling bin for the future. Otherwise, all else was good here.

Naj: Great food, very friendly and nice atmosphere, and my drink was great. Definitely will be back, better than my typical Starbucks coffee day. It’s also Black-owned, can’t beat that.

WittyBoi: I knew I had to visit this place and didn’t get a chance to do so for the many trips I took to DC. This time around I made it work; from the moment I stepped in, till I read all I could from all the available books written by or about Black people, till I talked to good people there, grabbed a cool chai latte - an amazing cooler - and had two items of the menu (one vegan one carnivore 😂) and until I said bye - I felt black pride ✊🏾 I felt represented, I felt like I belong, I honestly felt that I needed more of this. It’s very therapeutic and the infotainment is eye opening. Give thanks 🙏🏾 until I come next time either with my own book to put on the shelf or to just grab a coffee - Peace be with you brethren and Sistrens!! ✊🏾

LP: Everything about this place is wonderful. A true community space. Good food, good people, good literature. Worth dropping in JUST for the dirty chai. It’s so good!

TJ Da DJ TV: If you are looking for a bookstore that celebrates Black Culture to the fullest, this is where you need to come! Every single peice of literature in the store, is written and features Black excellence. From children's books to autobiographies, and even science fiction; the genres are all present. They also have a cafe with delicious paninis! The searing area is great for a Spring or Summer day. I highly recommend this bookstore!

Victoria Hardin: I found my place. There was a black owned bookstore (minus the cafe) like this in my hometown when I was growing up. You walk in and feel understood, embraced, and accepted without explanation or word said. The books, pictures, and music. Everything was affirming. It was peaceful. I was peaceful. The food was good, too. The staff kind.

Gigi Dacis: Great grilled cheese on a croissant and coffee at this Ethiopian/Egyptian themed coffee bar. It has alcohol for coffee shot as well. It does seem to not be best utilized with the indoor being overrun by a cluttered bookstore. They're forgoing their $10k annual return per coffee table for book mounds so be prepared to sit outside on their outdoor patio. It across from Howard University making it a great place to grab a coffee before touring the campus...like I did

Ludi Fessehaye: My favorite coffee shop in DC! I am a student and sankofa has great food, seating options, and wifi. I can always get work done here or find a book to purchase and read. Got most of my Toni Morrison collection from here and have been recommended other great books I have enjoyed! Definitely come!

Michael Kleven: I went here with my two friends to celebrate my birthday with a nice meal. Food was delicious and the staff was kind and attentive. We didn’t get to check out the book store and events but I’m sure they are great.

Nnamdi Azikiwe: Previously the site of the Omega Psi Phi headquarters. Now the location where it was first observed melanin is worth more than gold in March 2014 due to the insight of Baba Tarik A. Oduno. The Oduno Scale was crafted on this location and gratefully named in his honor.

Jake Juros: The Georgetown Flea Market is a great Sunday activity for friends and family. There are some vendors who are there regularly and some who show up every so often. There's a lot of fun clothing, accessories, decor, and miscellaneous things. I highly recommend going at least once a month to see what vendors have to offer!

Mark Pietrzykoski: Great place to get fantastic values. Furnish or decorate your home with unique pieces that don't come from a chainstore

Daryl Hairston: Plenty to shop here at the Georgetown Flea Market! Especially at KAT's Reussi Modern & Vintage Shop. I not only have a long friendship with Kat, I have purchased, and worn many of her modern and vintage clothing pieces, shoes, belts, shirts and hats. I dig her collectibles as well as her classic furnishings, coins, artwork, bric-a-brac and more... I have shopped and done runway shows with her since our San Diego days... Kat's no nonsense approach to fashion, is hip and rich, with an elevating sense of success and style, always with a nod to the old and new. Kat's Kollection immediately garners attention and admiration of the fashionable shopper, those with an eye toward acquiring and wearing modern and vintage art... eclectic furnishings, collectibles, treasures, that easily blend current and classic wear & go styles of today, yesterday, and tomorrow's ...trendsetters... ...Check out Kat's Reussi, now open at the Georgetown Swap Meet... see you Sundays -KR

Matilde C Calderon: An organized flea market where you can find unique and ancient jewelries, coins, and clothes. Most of the venders there are friendly and patient. You can also find a lot of amazing and talented artists with their artworks/paints there for sale. It is worth to visit if you are happen to be in DC on Sunday.

Paul Spiller: Despite the decline of fleamarketing in general, this one maintains a higher standard than most! It's a great place to find quality merchandice at bargain prices!

Lia Summers: Beautiful things everywhere and it's of good deals on kilims and artwork

Janet Michelson: Lovely little market with mostly smaller items today. Plenty of antiques and vintage. Got some great Pyrex, which was the goal. Extremely happy.

christina paul: I sell here and but from some of the vendors here. There are 2 vendors I avoid one that just sells crystals too expensive and selling colored glass as crystals. Another is a eomsn whom sells tea sets… overpriced

Nadia Medina: Small but very unique . Parking nearby . No food for sale .Pass thru old Georgetown was beautiful

Mike O'Bryant II: FRONT TO BACK A GREAT MARKET! Great dealers, great prices and great Area! Best stands are in front right by the bus stop and arnd the back alley!!

Capitol Coin & Stamp Co Inc: what do users think?


Spence: HUGE collection of presidential memorabilia!!! Sold my coins here and used the money to buy my dad an awesome Christmas gift. Fantastic spot to buy one of a kind souvenirs from DC They have presidential posters, buttons, golf balls, watches, medals, coins, and tons of other cool gifts—priced from $5-400 Nelson, the owner, is a lovely gentleman who will help to appraise your coins quickly and fairly. I had a foreign coin worth $25 in silver, up to $120 as is. He gave me $25 and that was fair. But I also had some rare Roman coins and he suggested I take them to a coin show. He also offered to take them there himself and call me the next day with the appraisal. Genuine, knowledgeable, and fair guy. PS it’s inside the P of H GRANGE building, in between the White House history center and the brick building, across the street from Teaism (it’s in the basement, so don’t bother looking for the sign or street number haha)

Ray King: This shop is a unique place! Nelson is going to help you with whatever you need and will also be fair if you are a seller. The place is hard to find but worth the effort. Businesses like this are sadly disappearing. Casey will also make your visit worthwhile! Do not miss the opportunity to visit. You won’t regret it.

Wes Weymers: I was in town for business and had some time to spare. I stopped in at Capitol Coin and had a great experience. Nelson was helpful and was willing to discuss price. A lot of Washington DC memorabilia. I promised to go back and I will next trip to DC. A throwback to the good old days of collecting.

Cliff Eberhardt: The owner is a class act. I have been buying coins from Nelson for over 25 years and he has always been honest, fair and sincere. His knowledge of the industry is unsurpassed by anyone. I wish he would live to be 125 years old. He is quite a guy.

Daniel Spicuzza: Nice shop good customer service. They have everything from rare foreign and domestic coins to old boxes of silver Washington Quarters. Want a few Indian Head pennies for the kids ? They have a giant box. Want a sharp 1 oz American Eagle in protective case? They've got it.

Hidden Numismatist: This is a coin shop, period. You walk into Nelson's shop and you feel you are in 'Toy Land' as a coin collector. Nelson, the Senior Numismatist and Owner is fun to talk to and you learn so much from listening to him. I could talk to Nelson for hours. Awesome shop.

Gordon Cameron: Ordered a coin online that was reasonably priced. Got an order confirmation, shipped quickly with tracking, and well packed. Would do more transactions in the future.

J W: I called these guys and asked if they'd look at some of my slabbed PCGS holders I got from eBay to determine whether or not they were authentic and was basically told that if they're in a PCGS holder then they're real. Very rude tone as well. Ugh!

James R: The owner/worker(i’m not sure) was very helpful and patient with me

Joseph Gregory: I was on holiday in DC and wanted to pickup some gold and Capitol Coins was close to me so I went in. It's a real hidden gem. Lots of things to see and search through and some beautiful coins both loose and graded slabs. If I go back to DC I will 100% be popping back in

Georgetown Law Bookstore: what do users think?


David Paniagua: Very friendly staff and great service. Reasonably priced apparel and Georgetown products. Go Hoyas

Rebecca Taylor: There are absolutely no Georgetown Law sweatshirts in the women's department but numerous choices for men! Very very disappointing!!

Akeela Fowler: I appreciate the concept of this tiny bookstore. However, the staff there come off very unaware and disconnected from what is going on or either very rude. Would love to see more lively assistance and care in the employees.

David Kovach: There are one or two rude staff, but overall does exactly what it's supposed to--cater to law students and their families. Don't expect Starbucks and US Weekly.

Enrique Pardo: Small place. Good for georgetown Law textbooks and souveniers, but that's it. Does not have a good selection of books.

Ed Reichman: Lousy selection of styles, sizes and tiny inventory

Juan Martín Morando: (Translated by Google) It only has study guides. Very little material out of that (Original) Sólo tiene guías de estudio. Muy poco material fuera de eso
