What can you say about this particular Borders that a visitor to any Borders wouldn't know? Not much. It has the typical blend of books, music, and coffee drinks found at most other stores in the chain. Current best sellers are plentiful and available at a substantial discount off the jacket price. Bargains galore are available on mass market books and past best sellers. Music CDs are available across a wide range of tastes. Childrens' books are presented in a way that appeals to the eye and scale of the "typical" child.The location of this Borders is wonderful--at the corner of 18th and L--though parking in DC is rarely convenient. Because this is the store located in the heart of the national capital, special events tend to get an extra kick, especially book signings. Political books also get a bit more hype here than at most other Borders,The store is currently finishing off a facelift, leaving all its offerings in a fresher frame.No doubt about it, this Borders is a small cut above most I've visited. Still, it is a chain, and its interiors, stock selections, and cafe menu all reflect that fact.

PROS: Loads of books--all within easy reach of POTUS, should he care to indulge
CONS: It's still a chain

I usually p0refer the little non-chain book stores, but when I can't find what I'm looking for at one fo those, I head here to Borders, or over to the Georgetown B&N.

This Borders is pretty much like any other. They have a great selection of books, with a nice amount of reduced books too. What I like about this chain is the coffee shops inside each store. This one is no exception. There's just something pleasant about browsing for books with a nice latte in your hand.

They have a nice big selection of magazine too, as well as a fairly decent inventory of intellegent-type games. They aren't over priced at all either, often running some decent sales.

This location is kept very well organized and the staff is both knowledgable and eager to help.

PROS: Great staff
CONS: Well, it's a chain

This bookstore is very good. It was a nice place for me to relax, drink my coffee, and read books. I occassionally have completed my homework at this location several times. Please give it a try.

One of my favourite places in DC. The books/magazine selection is great, the cafe allows you to browse while you sip coffee and snack. It is in quite a central location.

PROS: Selection
