This is such a great way to spend a day with my daughter Kristin of Kritters Ramblings. We are both book people. She was my tour guide – getting me around D.C. – on and off the metro, etc.
First Stop: Library of Congress
Being inside was awesome. The pictures will tell you more then my words can express.
This is the list of the librarians at the Library of Congress – very interesting.
Next Stop: We had pizza and across the street was a interesting book store – Second Story Books.
I wasn’t sure what to expect inside. It had a lot of older books, so if you are looking for something out of print this might be the place to look. They did have a section for newer books. I bought The History of Us by Leah Stewart.
Last Stop: Kramerbooks & afterwards
I read the book The List by Karin Tanabe and they had gone to Kramers. It made me want to go check it out. It is really a great place to go if you ever have the chance. There was a lot to look at there. The Cafe is a fun place to eat – has a full menu, but we opted for dessert. I ended up buying The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen.
Such a great way to spend a day in D.C.
Thanks Kristi for a great day!
