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 .

 

 

The Last Bookstore has everything a book lover ever wanted. I hope they preserve this bookstore for years to come.

  1. This is the coolest bookstore in the world! I don’t really call myself a bookworm but I do love to read. It looks like the perfect place to spend all day reading in!

  2. I’m a huge book nerd and this place is right up my street. I love the fact you have all these incredible books under one roof. I completely agree with the Instagramable shot; I’d certainly take a photo too!

  3. I loved how the bookstore made up the tunnel of books. The other quirky decorations are also instagrammable. No wonder your little one enjoyed his time. I wish something like this was there near my home!

  4. Being a book lover, this place looks like a heaven to me. Whenever I plan to visit LA, I’ll make it a point to visiting the book store. Also, I loved all of the pictures but the last one where the book shelf is sort of hanging is my favourite one. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I would love to visit this place since I’m in love with books! I’m kinda opposite to you, I always buy books in bookstores. Those pictures that you posted on Instagram look really cool!

  6. I love stumbling across book shops, but it’s true- I’ve never heard of any massive book stores anymore that aren’t massive chains like Indigo or Chapters! I love how creative they are playing with creating different sculptures and shapes with the books! I only buy from second-hand book shops, and one of my favourites uses lego to help divide the books, and that’s what this place reminds me of! Great find!

  7. It’s wonderful to have such kind of bookstore in your place. The way they arrange the books are amazingly beautiful. Children will certainly love a place like this. Thank you for sharing this great books store.

  8. Oh my gosh – I would want to move in and never leave. Even though it’s so easy to purchase and download books online, there is something so satisfying about browser through stacks of books, and having them in your hands. Thank you so much for sharing….now I want to go experience The Last BookStore for myself.

  9. Hi! My daughter is also 18 months old! I also enjoy visiting bookstores as it’s a great way to browse for the books that I would like to purchase. I’m thankful that my daughter loves to read too!

  10. This is one huge bookstore indeed. I would love to visit here some day. The number of books is amazing but they art is so extraordinarily unique. Thanks for sharing the awesome place to visit.
