I know where it used to be but haven't been there in a while... I can't remember any of the road names but if you go from Kings Park Shopping Center toward Burke, pass Lake Braddock, go to the bottom of the hill and make a right (Burke Village 2?). It is (or was) down there. The guy there was the owner of Joe's Books and Comics a few years ago elsewhere in Burke.

Do you remember what you asked me the other day; if I ever read the books I burn? Remember?

Last night I read one.

If you ever make it up to Rockville, the Second Story Books warehouse by Twinbrook Metro is insane. It's huge.

I think maybe responding to an 11 year old post might be a little less than useful, but who knows?

Your right! Didn't notice the date on the first post. Oh well, it popped up current for some reason. Info is accurate so who knows, maybe someone is still looking. Wtf.

Yes. It is called the Fairfax County Public Library system. You pay taxes to fund it. You may go there and check out books (and other items) at your leisure.

A little farther afield - both of these are in interesting old shopping centers, kind of tucked away:

Reston's Used Book Shop in Lake Anne Village Center

Friends of the Library book shop in Rockville, MD, on Boiling Brook Parkway
