Okey , I will be honest, I have never visited or heard about Bookstores in a decade as I shop for books online from sites like Amazon/e-bay or just lend them from a local Library. I thought Bookstores have vanished and they don’t exists these days , which is true in a certain way. But recently I got to know about “The Last Bookstore” in Downtown Los Angeles and couldn’t stop myself checking it out.
The Last Bookstore is California’s largest used and new book and record store and this place is a HUGE two story building , the ground floor has bestsellers filled with books, vinyl records, etc. They’ve got all genres to look through. And on the second floor, they have photography, sculptures, little craft stores, art galleries and MORE. They also have a tunnel made up of books which is great for a photo-op!
There’s a raised stage where events like readings and book signings take place
There’s also a kid’s section where they have numerous books for kids of all ages with a cute seating. My little one (18 months old) had a great time trying to read and looking at the colorful pictures in those books.
This place is a treasure hunt and luckily I found a couple gems for a really good deal. The best part is, most of the books here are only for $1.00(used books in a good condition). They also have Yelp check-in discount on used books.
Don’t forget to check out the the second floor, which is definitely a Instagrammble place .
This old bank turned bookstore and vinyl shop is definitely a must visit in Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) . – It not only has a HUGE variety of Books (new and used) but also has many interesting spots for photo – ops ! – – – Check out my blog to know more about this place – http://www.eazynazy.com/los-angeles/the-last-bookstore-instagrammble-place/ – – – #thelastbookstore #eazynazy #blogger #losangeles #dtla #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #mustsee #california #bookworm #bookstore #bookslover #bookstore #unique #la #usa
The Last Bookstore has everything a book lover ever wanted. I hope they preserve this bookstore for years to come.
