WASHINGTON -- Jack Sarf of District-based Franklin & Rocky Properties bought a 17,500-square-foot industrial building for $1.2 million. The building is at 2400-2410 T St. NE and was built by Myron Loewinger in the mid-1960s to house his National Coin Machine Co. and other businesses.

"That's about a million books on those shelves," Chuck Roberts says proudly. The owner of Wonder Book and Video is standing in a 54,000-square-foot warehouse in Frederick, waving an arm toward what looks like a combination of the world's biggest bookstore and a grungy aircraft hangar. Eight-foot metal and wooden shelves, housing the used books Roberts sells on the Internet, stretch as far as a dust-filled eye can see. Taller, Costco-scale units hold massive, book-filled boxes not yet unpacked.
