Are you tired of the big commercial bookstores taking up entire city blocks and closing down all your favorite mom and pop’s places? Then, you should stop by Bridgestreet Books, appropriately named, as it is located on the Penn Ave-M Street Bridge heading into Georgetown from Foggy Bottom. This two-story store provides all the best sellers and popular stuff, but also carries a lot of lesser-known publications, especially of some wonderful local writers. Also, from time to time, they host readings. Perfect place for a literary-type.
