    »Takoma Books

    Though the shop's address is Carroll Avenue, it is hidden from the street. Go around the corner and the entrance is there. Once inside, you will find a surprising array of second-hand books from tomes on history to classics and popular fiction. See if you can discover that special book under a haphazard pile of others. Keep an eye out for signs that explain the store's pricing.

    »Idle Time Books

    Book browsers are welcome in this cozy, two-level bookshop on Adams Morgan's bustling 18th Street. The rather worn shelves are crammed with every different type of book imaginable, and all books are well organized by author and genre. The books in here are used; paperbacks are half the cover price and hardcover books list the price on the inside cover page. Books are generally in good condition. The shop has several strategically placed chairs on the small upstairs level for those struck by the temptation to scan their literary finds.

Terry McMillan is among the many authors who hold readings and book signings here. A move to more spacious quarters added room for an expanded selection of children's books, and gift items.
