Politics and Prose is a fantastic book store - knowledgeable staff, good selection, great speaker series. I love the weekly email subscription, which describes upcoming events, top sellers of the week and providers reccommendations. Cute little coffee shop inside too. It's the kind of store that appeals to families, yuppies and all sorts of book lovers. While the space is small, the intimate setting is a great place to listen to authors talk about their work. There are also several book clubs that meet regularly.
