Day 13: Ada’s Technical Books

September 5, 2010

Located in Capitol Hills historic Loveless Building (built in 1930 as a live/work studio space for artists) is Ada’s Technical Books a tiny book shop dedicated to computer, science, math, and innovative books.  The shop, named for Ada Lovelace, (the 19C daughter of Lord Byron who is now generally considered the world’s first computer programmer) is a quaint and cozy book shop with lots of comfortable chairs,  a small lounge and a fireplace.  There are nooks and crannies filled with old, new, and used books for the scientifically minded.  This shop does not have the vast collection of books Opamp has in Los Angeles, but it does have a warmer ambiance and hint of sophistication only the ghost of Ada Lovelace could provide.
