Times “Readers Choice 2011” named us as the favorite bookstore for the Valley/Ventura area, the April 2007 issue of Los Angeles Magazine listed us as one of the best used bookstores in L.A., the L.A. Times did a feature article on us, we’ve been featured on Storage Wars, and we’ve been home to numerous movie and television shoots. We have over 125,000 books in stock, a convenient location with free parking, long hours, an experienced staff, and air conditioning.
