the last bookstore, los angeles

There’s a bookstore in downtown LA called “The Last Bookstore” and I think it’s my new favorite.  They sell books & records, have a stage for events, have a mini art gallery/shops, and have incorporated books into the decor.  The criminal/justice section is in a vault, there’s a book tube that leads you to the dollar section….dollar section.  The dollar section is most of the upstairs….which means it’s thousands and thousands of books; large, small, hardcover, softcover…all just one dollar each.  They’re organized a little bit, but for the most part it’s totally mixed up…there are boxes of books off to the side, piles of books on tables, on the floor, etc.  Part of the fun is grabbing a book and not knowing what it’s going to be…I could see myself spending hours up there.  It feels like you’re in Harry Potter or something…it has a magical quality to it.
