Capitol Hill Books

It’s arguably the most Instagrammed storefront in D.C., but the real shots are inside. As you enter the small rowhouse on Capitol Hill, one packed from floor to ceiling with used books, take note of the list of words “not spoken here” (“awesome,” “OMG” and “problematic” are just a few millennialisms at which the former owner cringes). You’ll then notice snarky commentary written on notecards reacting to the books on display. Novels are upstairs, sociology is in the basement and foreign language is in the bathroom. BTW: The store has free wine and cheese every second Saturday of the month from 4 to 7 p.m. Full guide at: https://www.washingtonpost.com/travel/united-states/washington-dc-local-guide/
