Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.

I had never been to Capitol Hill Books before but I could have easily spent all day there. There are books covering every inch of space in the small store. The organization is a little confusing but that’s part of the charm. If you’re a bibliophile and have some time to kill, I highly recommend checking it out.

Amazing used bookstore. 3 levels with floor to ceiling books (sci-fi/fantasy in the basement, non-fiction on the main floor, and fiction on the top). Huge selection - found what i was looking for and much more. Prices are reasonable - paperbacks tended to range between $4 - $8 each; hardcovers $10 - $16 (not including first addition/rare copies).

Best bookstore in DC. They have a vast collection that will put any of the public libraries to shame.
