    Olsson’s is dead and gone, but that doesn’t mean DC’s meatspace is without some fine used-bookstores. Vertigo Books in College Park has some sweet deals going on right now. (I know, I know, it’s not technically in DC, but spare me the geography lessons–it’s close enough.)

    For yer buyin’ pleasure:

    The Trials of Lenny Brucecan be had for $6.99, Langston Hughes’ The Dream Keeper for $3.99, and The House at Pooh Corner for $4.99. Vertigo is also selling American Splendor (starring Paul Giamatti) and Cotton Comes to Harlem on DVD for $6.99. Good deals, all.

    Check ‘em out at 7346 Baltimore Ave., College Park. 301-779-9300.
