The largest independent bookshop in Southern California was founded over a century ago and is still going strong. The stock is excellent and the staff very helpful. Keep an eye out for the regular readings and the book signings. There's also a gift and stationery store up the road at No. 667.

I'm an Amazon Prime addict, but I gladly shell out the few extra bucks to support Vroman's. It's existed in some form or another since 1894 (!) and those years of experience really show; the book selection is great and the staff is super helpful. It's a great store to peruse, and even when I don't intend on doing so, I end up walking out with a book. The author signings and lectures are great, too.
