It's not very often that you find an independent book store in a city like LA and Dutton's is exactly that. The best part about this bookstore is that it also has a good collection of used books... how many times have you wanted to buy a book only to find it's utterly expensive... and so often you just wanna read the book and not be over-awed by its glitzy cover? Dutton's offers the perfect real-life alternative to used-book websites like half.com ...

Take a trip to Dutton's and you might just find something that is well out of print in the market!

I am a voracious reader and lov used book stores. Unfortunatly they are dissapearing and Amazon.com charges too much for used book shipping. Fortunatly, Duttons in North hollywood still sells used books. There selection is modest, but they have a wide variety of subjects and their staff is helpful.

One of only a handful of independent bookstore in the San Fernando Valley, Dutton's Bookstore is an absolute treasure. Dutton's employee's are always the coolest and most well-read of any batch of bookstore employees and they're not snobby about it, either! My favorite parts of Duttons are the rare and first edition book cabinet, the pulp fiction novel drawer, oh, and the cute boy behind the counter! If you have several hours, or even ten minutes, Dutton's is a must. Sure it's a little messy, but, the prices are very cheap, the owners are exceptionally friendly, and you'll walk out of there with ten new friends, a bunch of interesting facts, and (most likely) a huge bag full of books! Why don't you check it out for yourself?

PROS: brilliant and friendly employees, lots of books, and low prices.
CONS: a bit dusty and unorganized (but isn't that the fun in browsing?)

If you're a book lover and you haven't been to Dutton's get in your car right now and drive over. Sure, Barnes and Noble and Borders have coffee and bathrooms, but a trip to Dutton's just feels good. Like a big comfy chair or something - and no, they don't have those either. But what they do have is winding skinny aisles full of books stacked high, cool little nooks, interesting art prints, a huge selection of used books at great prices, and... parking. You won't want to leave. Go and support them - keep these indie stores around!

This is a cool little bookstore. I always go here to support the private businesses over the big corporations. They offer those hard to find, out of print books, through special order or by in stock! They have a great selection of quirky eclectic greeting cards with cool art. It is an art store too. They have prints of many movie one sheets and old posters. I highly recommend this place. It is a bit old and small, but it gives you that feeling of unique sophistication and friendliness when you step in the door! Check it out, it's right next too Popeye.

Although not a large bookstore, Dutton's Studio City location has lots of new, used, & rare books for you to peruse & buy, not to mention a fantastic selection of greeting cards & postcards. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable & can order you anything you need that isn't currently in stock. They also do out of print searches for books that are no longer available. This is a great local bookstore.

...at least in the early 80s. really nice, knowledgeable staff as well. i recall crossing the boulevard to get into dutton's when some choad in a white mercedes ran into the x-walk and almost clipped me. i turned prepared to howl abuse when i noticed the driver was ray manzarek. do you remember him? of course not, no worries. at the time i thought the doors were cool, so i just nodded pacifically and toddled on my right-of-way. these days however, i would yank him out the window by his hippie hair if for no other reason than to beat some much needed sense and sensibility into him : namely the fact that jim morrison is dead and has remained that way for the past 35 years. get over it, a-clown! nice job making those two x records sound like a hammond wurlitzer demo session, ray, you wetspot!

I'm surprised to see a person say Dutton's has a rude staff. I've been in the Valley for about 10 years and they're the best bookstore I've ever come across. Nice people and, geez, what an abundance of rare, neat, old books. They're the last of the 'old time' shops in L.A. and if they're ever rude to you, I'm sure you had it coming. I sold Mr. Dutton my entire set of Elbert Hubbbard books and he paid me two thousand dollars (more than any other store offered me). God Bless Dutton's Books!

Looking for an obscure title or offbeat author? Try Dutton's. The staff at this shop will probably know where to find it, and can have it delivered in a day or two. Westside book fanatics, don't feel left out, there's a Dutton's in Brentwood too.
