12th and G St, NW

Tough times continue for the big bookstores [as well as the retail in this particular building – RIP ESPN Zone] – Books a Million closed in July and now news broke from the Washington City Paper late Friday afternoon:

“Barnes & Noble on the ground floor of 555 12th St. NW—known as the Thurman Arnold Building—will shut down by the year’s end.”

Fortunately Politics and Prose, Kramerbooks and Upshur Street Books continue to kick ass. And don’t forget Riverby Books is coming back too!
