    Aside from a very small number of independent bookstores the only really interesting local bookstore left here in Washington DC is SECOND STORY books, which focuses entirely on “used” and rare books. They have a location in downtown DC (at Dupont Circle if anyone knows the area) and a warehouse north of the city in Rockville, Maryland. I’m told that even they do much of their business online but there is nothing like the excitement of finding some great old book that you never even knew existed while browsing through the shelves. I recently found a book entitled THE TEARS OF RE which is about beekeeping in Ancient Egypt, full of the sort of functionally useless but wonderfully absorbing information that brightens up one’s life.
