Even if it’s for just 15, 20 minutes, I’d like to have a moment to read on a relaxing Sunday.
One of my favorite places to visit when I’m in downtown Los Angeles is The Last Bookstore located on South Spring St.
Beautiful architecture designed by Parkinson and Bergstrom in 1914; the building was completed at a time when the downtown historic core of Los Angeles was called “The Wall Street of the West.” The Last Bookstore carries a variety of selections from first editions signed by the author to second-hand books and some vinyl.
“GRACE” by Robert Lacey, “DRAMA” by John Lithgow, “AUDREY” by Alexander Walker and “Leni Riefenstahl a memoir” by St, Martin’s Press, these beautiful hardcovers were all $6~$8! I know Kindle and iPad are the smarter way to carry books, but call me old school, I love having the weight of the books in my hands, turning pages and adding them to your collection onto the bookshelf.
