Capitol Hill books is in a beautiful neighborhood in DC. The streets are lined with row houses and a lot of trees. I walked to this store from the Library of Congress. The store space is confined but neatly kept. Friendly helpful staff. Glad I visited this store.

This place is the quintessential "little shop around the corner," alone on Capitol Hill as an independent seller of new books now that Trover is gone. It's charming and really deserves to be treasured; worth a wander off the beaten path during your next DC visit...
