The Best Bookstore in Los Angeles

July 9, 2019

As a semi-professional bookworm, I consider it my most important duty to visit independent bookstores across the country. So, when I landed in Los Angeles, CA, I looked up some of the best bookstores in the city — and I found a true bookworm treasure: The Last Bookstore in Downtown LA.

It’s perfect for used books, new books, booktagram moments and just about everything in between. Imagine two stories of books, art and photo moments. I mean, I really appreciate a bookstore that knows the importance of a good bookstagram shot. (Be on the lookout for some of these photos on my Instagram page over the next month. 👀)

This bookstore is amazing, and here are the photos to prove it.

Gorgeous design

Rainbow shelves

Stacks on stacks

Window to… more books!

Whimsical details

Sci-fi bookshelves

And the book arch!


If these photos didn’t convince you to buy a flight out to California ASAP, I don’t know what will. The Last Bookstore is one of the coolest bookstores I have ever been in and I wish I had been able to dive into all the stacks and find hidden, bookish treasures. I’ll just have to go again — it’s normal to want to spend 5 hours at a bookstore, right?

Tell me… what are some of your favorite independent bookstores? I’ve been to a few, but I would love to know the best bookstores in your area. I need to know so I can visit them and take in all the bookish glory.
