This is a great bookstore to get lost in. They have stacks and stacks of every genre of books, including hard-to- finds and first editions. They also have a great children's book section. Very reasonably priced to boot!

If you love old book stores this is a place you should check out. They just opened about a year ago and their selection is getting better and better. They have many sections and their prices are right on. The owner is also really helpful.

I have been going to this place for countless years now. They used to look a bit run down... But not too long ago had the storefront painted with scenes from well known books. It was a beautifully done job and makes the place look 1000 times more attractive and really catches your eye. Inside it's a cozy and inviting atmosphere. They have books from floor to ceiling on practically every subject and genre you can think of. When you first walk in they have a bargain book area with deeply discounted books (I"ve never really found anything of much interest - but there is quite a bit to browse through.) I mostly go for my fantasy and sci-fi fix but have bought quite a few art books there as well. (Which I got at a phenominal deal considering how expensive art books are.) They have an area with couches where you can sit and read to your heart's content. (And they have to resident kitties who you can always catch snoozing on them - so cute!) They also have a small but fantastic collection of rare books for sale that they keep in a glass case. I love this place, it's the best used bookstore I've ever found in all the states I've lived in. The staff is helpful but can be a bit snobby. I've also sold my old books there (or resold ones I've bought from them.) You don't get the best prices for them, but I don't mind so much. The credit I do get just goes back into purchasing more books from them. I highly recommend The Iliad, it's a bookworm's dream and I can't imagine going anyplace else.

This book store is pretty cool - lots of used books - stacked up to the ceiling. It's a fun place to browse - the type of place you can spend hours in. Great location.

They're stocked from floor to ceiling, but with a little looking, I've always found some great books here at much better prices than buying new. I've also sold many of my used books here over the years, and have always felt like they gave a good price.

It is a little run down in here, and books are all over the place, but that's the charm of The Iliad Bookshop in North Hollywood. None of the Barnes & Noble organization at this place, but if you're looking for an older, harder to find publication, my bet is you find it at The Iliad. Assistance is readily available, and books can be ordered or researched. Seems like the place your "old college professor" would spend his weekends and evenings. Nothing special, just plenty of reading material. Get past the outward appearances, and you won't be disappointed.
