I went to “The Last Bookstore” in downtown L.A. and came out happy after seeing thousands of books in this quirky place!
Last time I was in Los Angeles I bought a bunch of used books about wine and took them back to Paris; the books were great and I like the bookstore’s sense of humor:
Even funnier are their section of “books by color”!
They have taken this idiocy to the max:
Only people who love books can laugh at them like this by arranging them by color!
Some people play chess,
but they mainly read…
They have a little art gallery :
There is a Borg section,
that I liked a lot:
I was even able to find one of my favorite issues of National Geographic magazine about Suleiman the Magnificent from 1987!
Just some snow outside and it would have been a perfect christmas scene…
No snow but they have this amazing labyrinth made out of books that starts with a funny tunnel:
with a soldier standing guard outside…
If you don’t like what you read, you know what to do:
But when you get over your anger, you can sit down quietly and read again,
A nice book about Christmas,
before these ladies get angry at you…
And throw you out of…
Merry Christmas everybody!
