The aptly named Skylight Books is an oasis in this era of impersonal, labyrynthian mall chain bookstores and soulless online ordering. This place not only celebrates the joy of books and reading, but somehow manages to make shopping for books as cool as sipping martinis in some trendy Westside bar. Forget the nerdish bookstore clerks of the past; this bookstore is staffed by helpful young people who have clearly cracked open more than a few titles in their time.There is even a steady soundtrack of interesting music,lively and regular presentations featuring actual authors, and an unruffled feline ambling about or napping in the display window. It's a wonderful bookstore and well worth our support and business. I especially love their collection of classic literature, but they have many,many contemporary titles as well. Browse about and immerse yourself in the magic of books. Techno devices may be handy, but there is something about the look and feel and cover art of a book that is irreplaceable to my senses,and treasures abound at Skylight Books. Go.. you won't regret it.
I've had a job every summer since I was 16 years old. My primary reason to work was to have some extra spending money, but what I didn't realize was that I was actually sampling careers to see where I fit in. I worked as a kennel assistant at a local animal hospital during the summer before my freshman year of college. It was then that I discovered what I wanted to do for my career. I decided I would to go to college and focus on becoming a small animal veterinarian and that's what I did. I have been working at the same animal hospital ever since.
This is my favorite bookstore in the Los Angeles area. I typically go on the weekends and it's never been too busy or crowded. Staff are helpful and can give you suggestions based on your interests. It's located in a vintage looking building in downtown and they have an upstairs area with changing exhibits. Parking can be a pain since it's in downtown, but street parking is free all day Sunday. Check their website for events like lectures, shoes, and author talks. Highly recommend for book lovers!
Shop has a lot of interesting things in it. There's candles and soap from different parts of the world which the wife totally dug. Also random knicky knacky things you can buy to decorate your place. You can find some cool gifts in there. There is a section for jewelry/art from local artists and also a section for childrens toys. The owner was a really nice guy and explained the origins of various strange objects when we inquired.
Finally - a good (make that great) used bookstore in Atwater Village. A carefully curated selection of titles at good prices in a beautiful space and open 7 days from 10 to 10. Drop in Sunday mornings after the Farmers market or pick-up a book and drift over to Kaldi's.
This bookstore is a gem! I'm not sure how I didn't hear about this place sooner. They have a great selection of new and used books. I've found several great cookbooks and many science fiction novels. It's also a perfect spot to hang out and get lost.
What a great place for birthday gifts! They had just what we were looking for for my niece's birthday. And their staff was so nice and helpful. SO rare these days. I'm recommending to my friends with little ones in their lives.
Sometimes you just have to go to Toys R Us. This one shares a parking lot with Costco (ugh) and is always a bit of a mess inside. And it's impossible to find anyone to help you and then you wait a while to check out.
I had to take my Daughter here. She loves books and this place seemed like a world close to Harry Porter. We spent over and hour here. She was obsessed and found so many new and old books. Can't wait to go back.
I like it very much : You can then customize the product or the content of the product and use it in a variety of ways. visit @plrmerchandise.com [url=http://www.plrmerchandise.com]Private Label Rights[/url]
