GU Book Crew made a quick stop at Middle East Books and More on Wednesday afternoon and we weren’t disappointed! Friendly service, a nice environment and a great variety of books on all Middle Eastern topics. We even picked up a book! Right in the middle of DuPont and Adams Morgan, its a great place to visit and pick up a book before your afternoon coffee stop.
