Before all the mini-libraries popped up in neighborhoods all across the United States, the Book Thing of Baltimore had taken this idea to a whole new level with its store stacked floor-to-ceiling in books. The concept has always been simple, leave a book, take a book, and never, ever pay for one. Even if you try to pay for one, the volunteer workers will not accept your donation. It opened in 1999 and since then it has amassed a massive library of more than 150,000 books. It's located near the campus of Johns Hopkins University and it's definitely an impressively altruistic place to visit.

The store also stocks a large selection of records, compact discs, 45s and videos. The owners, a group of four men, also provide information on poetry readings and alternative music.
