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 called "Child of the '80s," and another dedicated solely to philosophy and critical theory. Tip: If you miss a reading, check their website for a podcast version.

I am a traveler and while traveling like to read books novels and different kinds of magazines. So would like to add here I am going to make a move around Los Angeles through this https://www.topbustours.com/los-angeles-departures/ and have a plan to visit Skylight Books for getting more books.
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!
