Capitol Hill Books is a used bookstore located on historic Capitol Hill in Washington DC, with two cozy floors of quality used books, first editions and rare books.
This is a place you have to see to believe. Books piled anywhere and everywhere. I especially love the quirky and clever labels (e.g. a pile on the floor labeled, "George Washington rests here").
Wonderful bookstore with plenty of charm. Smells like old books and glue with things in every nook and cranny. Has its own organization but might take a couple visits to appreciate it.
This place is a fire hazard. Books stacked to the ceiling, even in the bathrooms. But, there's a good selection, and sometimes, tequila from plastic bottles.
Smells good. Don't bring backpacks else you have to leave them at the front desk. Explore every room and floor.
Wall to wall to wall with books. The owner buys his merchandise from auctions... that sell dead people's stuff. Spooky. But neat.
Floor to ceiling books. Quirky labels. Vintage everything else. This is a quintessential bookstore.
Books, books, books, books.
This place oozes charm. From the oodles piles of paperbacks almost neatly lining the walls to the elderly cashier this place will not be soon forgotten. Your tab is also calculated by hand.
This place is as magical as harry potter's world -- can you find books you are looking for? Friendly staffs too
So many books, so little time.
This is the best used bookstore in the District -- huge selection, good prices.
A local, haphazard bookstore of a dying breed. Visit for free wine and cheese every second Saturday of the month. And make sure not to say the words "Amazon" or "kindle" in the owner's presence.
For a delightful surprise, be sure to open the cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Densely packed with good stuff, if you can get past the curmudgeonly owner.
