I am a fan of independent book stores and skylight defines themselves as "fiercly independent". Everything has become so corporatized over the past decades. The great thing about this store is that the employees actually read, they know the store like the back of their hand, and they'll even make reccomendations based on your interests. Skylight often has authors in to talk about, or read, or do autographing sessions which is always fun if it's something you're interested in.

PROS: Laid back cool independent place
CONS: I don't have anything negative to say

Skylight is a unique. Located in Los Feliz it has a great selection of books and a very comfortable, cozy vibe. Skylight is known for having authors reading in the store every month. It is a good place to find what youre looking for, get it signed by the author then sit down and read it. Definitely worth a visit.

Skylight is great, if for nothing else beyond the great authors they have come in house (including Chuck Klosterman and Bret Easton Ellis). It is a great spot to go to a reading, pick up the author's book and get it signed, then hit a local diner for dinner afterwards. And the vibe in this small, but packed full, store is really friendly.

PROS: Regular author readings with great writers!
CONS: I'll never figure out good parking in this neighborhood!

This independent bookstore located in the middle of the popular Vermont Ave. strip of Los Feliz, is a great bookstore to visit before or after catching a flick at the Los Felix 3, or on the days when they're holding author talks and events. I particularly like the discount shelf and the shelf showcasing the books of up and coming authors who are scheduled to come for a talk.

PROS: Great location in "hipster" Los Feliz neighborhood
CONS:

You have to be a hip bookstore to have the band WILCO, in the flesh, autographing copies of their book. Skylight is a unique, tiny bookstore in Los Feliz with a great selection of books, magazines, newspapers, etc. Whether youre hunting for the latest copy of Hollywood Reporter or picking up an autographed book by your favorite band...Skylight has it all. If youre in the mood you can always cruise in and listen to a reading around the tree, growing through the middle of the store.

PROS: great neighborhood

It's an independent book store for starters, and Skylight has world class authors reading in the store every month. I like the staff recommendations, the handmade cards, and the indoor tree. It's a great place to browse and find books that make you feel excited about literature again.

Really great independent book store. Some highlights include a religious conspiracy section, a selection of local "zines," lots of film/movie books, and good people watching. Definitely one of the best bookstores I've been to in LA, with a great selection for its size.
