The Place: Idle Time Books
Where: 18th Street NW just south of Columbia Road NW
Why Live Near Here: Exposed brick, mismatched chairs, thriving house plants: This is Idle Time Books.
Small local bookstores, especially ones like this, are a rare and wonderful thing these days seeing as though ALL bookstores seem to be going instinct thanks to the digital age we’re living in. Yet Idle Time stays standing and is a delight for people who relish shops that remain true to themselves and remind us of the old Adams Morgan that many of us so fondly remember.
