Why locals love it

The Last Bookstore has a very cool vibe. Eighty percent of the books sold are used, which means there is a surprise waiting for shoppers at every turn, whether it be an out of publish book, or a childhood favorite long forgotten. The upstairs houses several lofts, where artists work and sell their creations. There is always something new to find.

Why you should visit it

With constant visits from authors, artists, and speakers, The Last Book Store has so much to offer patrons. They sell vinyls in addition to their wide selection of new and used books, and have their own coffee bar. Visitors can easily get lost in the book maze upstairs, spend hours checking out the various artwork and sculptures made of books.

Special tip

Keep an eye out for notes and hidden treasures. Locals have been known to find old love letters and words of encouragement hidden in the shelves.

I agree - great place for both locals and tourists. And where else can you walk through a tunnel of books?!?! It's fun to combine a stop here with the Downtown LA Artwalk event - 2nd Tuesday of every month.
