If you live in the Los Angeles area and haven't made a trip downtown to The Last Bookstore, you must, especially if you call yourself a book lover.
I love this counter where you pay for your purchases. Yes, it is made from books.
The second floor of The Last Bookstore is called the Labyrinth. I loved the book window, and the arch made from books, and the small rooms filled with books.
There are also other great features that decorate the space. Everywhere you turn, there seemed to be something else to look at.
I took the two pictures (above) from the second floor looking down onto the main level.
Some great wall art/collages.
Everywhere you look there are books, some are shelved by author's last name, others by color, and even more just find their way onto any shelf. It is truly a magical place. The books upstairs in the Labyrinth cost $1 - and there are signs to grab a box and fill it up. On the main floor, books range in price from $2/book to full price for new books. And there is definitely something for everyone.
I visited The Last Bookstore with my book club. We found a corner to hang out in and discussed Three Times Lucky and ate peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and drank Mountain Dew and Coca-Cola. A good time was definitely had by all.
