This much-cherished, cozy neighborhood bookstore in Los Feliz strikes a neat balance between intellectual crowd-pleasers and more unusual fare, including a large selection of local zines. Open since the mid '90s, it bucked book-industry trends by expanding into neighboring premises a few years ago. It now houses readings, signings and some of LA's best book clubs, including one dedicated solely to Ulysses, and another for YA (young adult) novels. Tip: If you miss a reading, check their website for a podcast version.

I attended a reading here a few weeks ago which was pretty lovely - they had wine and snacks out for everyone, and a little Q&A after the reading. It's easy to get lost in your thoughts at Skylight, which smells like a bookstore should and offers everything from memoirs to travel books to feminist literature.

I love coming in here and browsing their huge selection of art and architecture books.  They also have a great selection of graphic novels as well!
