Santa’s visiting The Last Bookstore

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:

No snow but they have this amazing labyrinth made out of books that starts with a funny tunnel:
