The Last Bookstore

IMG_2195Two rules. First, one does not drive into LA, find and pay for parking, and just see one place. Second, one does not go near a bookstore and not go in.

Therefore, we included a visit to The Last Bookstore after our time at The Broad.

With over 250,000 new and used books, vinyl records, art galleries and a yarn shop, old couches and chairs, the only thing missing is a coffee bar.

Most books are downstairs, but there is a Labyrinth Last Bookstore upstairs with half-empty shelves waiting for you to sell yours to them. The art galleries are upstairs encircling the main floor with great views of the space.

We managed to walk away with a new book, The Martian, the book that the recently-released movie is based. We liked the movie, and we’ve heard that the book is even better.
