So I just got back from a trip out to Los Angeles. While I was there, I was compelled to check out some bookstores. My daughter recommended The Last Bookstore. I have to say, one of the coolest bookstores I’ve visited.
The store is two floors, and the second floor contains works of art created out of books.
In addition, the second floor is also home to a labyrinth of books.
As you meander through the maze of bookshelves, you encounter things like a portal made from books.
There is also an archway made out of books. Walking through it made my literary heart flutter.
So I know the question on everyone’s mind: What books did you buy? I bought a couple gift books for family, and for myself, I picked up Once (a collection of poems by Alice Walker) and Beyond The Wall by Edward Abbey. Considering the sheer volume of books available, I think I showed admirable restraint.
