Headed to Hollywood – Part IV – The Last Bookstore Tour
Hello friends and welcome to the last part of my fantabulous trip to Los Angeles (click here for Part III). Part IV is titled “The Last Bookstore Tour“ but it should be titled “The Lost Bookstore Tour” because this was definitely a bookstore that you could get lost in, not physically, but mentally!
The Last Bookstore is California’s largest used and new book and record store which opened it’s doors in 2005 in a downtown Los Angeles loft, then it grew quickly into a 20,000 sq. ft. space located in the Spring Arts Tower at 5th & Spring.
It reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode, it could have been a combination of “Time Enough At Last” and “Obsolete” both featured Burgess Meredith. I could have spend literally an entire day just walking through and reading the titles or looking at the art work on the walls, and still not have enough time to just sit down and read.
There were literally hundreds of thousand of books covering all subjects, categorized by title, interest or simply by the color of the cover. Your senses can be delighted or overwhelmed depending on how much of an interest you have in reading.
You can sell, trade or donate books, albums, records and works of art. I am sure that if there is any book that was ever written and you wanted to read it, The Last Bookstore would have it or find it for you.
