Favorite Bookstores

  • Normals Books – tucked quietly into the streets of Baltimore, it’s simply the best used bookstore in the omniverse
  • Third Eye Comics – the Mecca of comic book stores just outside of downtown Annapolis
  • Big Planet Comics – the place for your comic & graphic novel fix (College Park staff always have excellent recommendations)
  • Kramerbooks – between the browsers and the cafe-goers, this DC spot is always buzzing with bookishness
  • Island Bookstore – the best literary depot in the Outer Banks
  • Atomic Books – another Baltimore gem (noticing a pattern, aren’t ya?)
  • Politics & Prose – a DC institution for the bookish
  • Abe Books – always helpful when looking online for the rare or out-of-print
