Blue Awning store frontPlease welcome Blue Awning Books to the neighborhood. The new rare, out-of-print, and gently used bookstore opened up at 6009 Burnet Rd on the east side of Burnet Rd just north of Burnet Rd/Allandale intersection. I attended their open house Saturday evening and met owners Marshall and Karen Hamilton. The couple moved here recently from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia where they had a similar store.

Lately, I have been buying electronic books however walking around Blue Awning reminded me of the simple pleasure of browsing bookshelves and discovering great books. I don't know if it qualifies as a great book but I purchased "The Rolling Stone Interviews," written in 1970 for $3.60. See what you discover at Blue Awning Books. They are open 7 days a week.
