Olsson’s is dead and gone, but that doesn’t mean DC’s meatspace is without some fine used-bookstores. Vertigo Books in College Park has some sweet deals going on right now. (I know, I know, it’s not technically in DC, but spare me the geography lessons—it’s close enough.)
For yer buyin’ pleasure:
The Trials of Lenny Bruce can be had for $6.99, Langston Hughes’ The Dream Keeper (illustrated, no less) for $3.99, and The House at Pooh Corner for $4.99. Vertigo is also selling both American Splendor (starring Paul Giamatti) and Cotton Comes to Harlem on DVD for $6.99. Good deals, all.
Check ’em out at 7346 Baltimore Ave., College Park. 301-779-9300.
