A huge selection of culture and information books I found in this store. They have a separate section for adult novelistic books and videos. I bought a sci-fi magazine. The cashier was serviceable. It has a good location.

Totally hooked on the *huge* selection of magazines. All areas of interest are covered from one end of the store to the other. Several times I've been able to special order hard-to-find magazines. Would recommend this spot to anybody looking beyond the magazine rack of 7/11.

PROS: Nice big selection of mags.
CONS: Area can get iffy at late nights

All the books there are mostly gay oriented. There are rarely any best selling novels or some other form of classic literature here. It is mostly books about sex or books of naked men or women in it. Its more of an upscale version of an adult bookstore. The "porn" books are not trashy but I still consider them somewhat pornish. Its a great place to go to kill some time waiting for your friends to go clubbing right next door.

Well, this isn't exactly a newsstand. Like the name implies, Circus of Books is a bookstore, although its supply of books pales in comparison to its magazine selection. Located on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood (the wealthier gay ghetto in L.A.), Circus of Books has a nearly random selection of literature, gay pulp novel coffee-table books of fetish photography, and the like. Although not all of the books are explicitly gay, they all do reflect a gay male sensibility.

The real reason for this bookstore's existence, though, is the magazine selection, which follows the eclectic range of the bookshelves. Here is where you can buy your Atlantic Monthly, your old issues of Drummer and Honcho, your New York Times Book Review, and your fetish porn all in one stop.

The store is (mostly) clean and well-lit, but it is an "adult" bookstore, so don't take your minor children or prudish relations.
