Citysearch Editorial Review – Voted as the city's Best Unknown Bookstore by LA Weekly in 2009, this family-owned Eagle Rock shop is friendly and eclectic, like any used bookstore worth its salt. The teeny space is well worn, but organized, which adds to its cozy charm. Titles spill out from overstocked shelves, and line the floors where there's no more shelf space, but everything somehow remains neat and easy to find. Categories range from children and young adult titles to arts and entertainment. One thing you won't find here is filler; expect to come across plenty of books that you've been wanting to read. A comfy old couch by the sunny window anchors the place, along with a magazine rack impressive enough to hold its own in a corporate bookstore behemoth. East Coast transplants take note: You can pick up your New York Times here. Among the shop's selections you'll find a few new books, signed copies, first editions and titles by local authors, but mostly it's about well-priced used books. Don't miss the crates out front with bargains like $.50 mystery paperbacks.
