Mark Athitakis seeks messy, dimly-lit bookstore (in D.C.)

Mark Athitakis of the Washington City Paper’s City Desk responds to Chris Lehmann’s and Sean Carman’s D.C. bookstore recommendations.

He likes Books for America’s selection and prices, but is looking for a messier, more dimly-lit place. Bonus points for stacks smelling of mulch.
