Anyone Gonna Miss Borders? What’s the Best Bookstore Left?

I’m sure most have heard by now that DC’s Borders bookstores (and many others) are closing. On Sat. I stopped by the one one on 18th and L St, NW and it felt like a funeral. While people were taking advantage of the 30% off deals, I constantly heard hushed conversations saying, “it’s so sad” and people talking to the employees saying, “I’m so sorry”. I know when I worked downtown I loved browsing this particular store. It was a lifesaver. Having said that, I did do more browsing than purchasing. Will others miss Borders?

And with Borders soon to be gone (an employee I spoke with said by April depending on supplies) who does this leave as best bookstore left (new not used) Kramerbooks in Dupont, Barnes & Nobles downtown by the E St. Cinema or Politics and Prose in Van Ness/Chevy Chase?

Of course in July we learned Politics and Prose was for sale
