I’ve been meaning to post about Chapters A Literary Bookstore for a while but I couldn’t seem to find it. It was located at 445 11th St., NW. I just thought I kept walking down the wrong street. Sadly the location has closed. However, their Web site says:

“CHAPTERS is currently in storage, but we now have a Letter of Intent from the landlord of 601 Penn. Ave. NW (on Indiana Ave., between 7th & 6th) in the dynamic Penn Quarter area of downtown D.C., and 90 days to raise the funds to undertake the lease. With your help, we will again be part of the downtown renaissance, and of its cultural and community life. Please see the home page: WHY & HOW TO MAKE A DONATION. Thank you!”

I think that 90 days has passed. Has anyone noticed any movement at 601 Pennsylvania Ave? Anyone remember how great this store was?
