I love the selections of books here from general fiction to thrillers and comedy. I would certainly recommend this one to any book lovers.

Ebooks or paperbacks??? I would still choose the latter. For me, paperbacks still offer a wonderful experience you can never have with ebooks. This place offers huge discounts for paperbacks so come and visit!

In the name of everything good, you should visit this store. It's one of the oldest bookstores in LA -- 50 years old according to the owner- - and a vestige of the old world when people actually walked into neighborhood bookshops to buy their latest read. It's really a sad testament that we've become such a fast-paced, instantly-gratified culture that would rather forgo the face-to-face interaction with people in favor of a swift online 'experience.' Anyway, check out the once-a-month parking lot sale and save yourself some money and spare the waste of buying a new book!

Pros: Service, throwback to the old-school days of reading

Cons: People dont go to used bookstores anymore

Great selection, excellent books, staff was very helpful. Place is old small and smells of old books - which has a certain appeal - disorganized but the staff found what I wanted. Certainly not a B&N in any sense and that can be good!

This is a pretty decent store... the collection of books is nice and the atmosphere is quiet; the prices are *extremely* reasonable and you can actually shoot the price down if you talk to them! Dont expect too much customer service here though! Overall a place I would go back again

A great bookstore tucked away in Van Nuys. Books used and new at almost half price. A vast collection of Art, Photography, Architecture, CHildrens, History, Literature, Photography, Music etc. Books are also bought here by the two owners, brother andsister, Bill and Diane. Secret word for shopping "CASH" will get you a half off discount on the retail price. There are NO returns, don't even think about it. Drawback to shopping here, owners are not customer friendly. Ask too many questions and you get a "look/lecture" and most often with an attitude. If you need expensive coffee table books, know what you are looking for and bring the cash and pay and get out. Bookstore is also very very crowded. Aisles small, shop at your own risk. Its worth it for the books though!
