Book Escape is the used-bookstore total package. You can grab a classic, a recent best-seller, a collector’s tome, an art book, a wacky self-help book from the ‘70s, or even a brand new book. The Federal Hill store is musty enough to please used-bookstore nerds but well-organized enough for those just trying not to pay full price. And, Book Escape opened a second location this year. An independent bookstore growing instead of going the way of the dodo is definitely something to celebrate.
