Our brick-and-mortar store is located in North Hollywood, California, we’re one of the largest used bookstores in the Los Angeles area, and we specialize in Literature and the Arts (but carry books on most subjects). The LA Weekly named us “Best Bookstore, Valley” in their 2012 “Best of L.A.” issue and “Best Used Graphic Novels” in their 2015 “Best of L.A.” issue, the L.A. 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.

If you are interested in working for Iliad, sorry – we have no job openings at this time.

If you’re bringing your small dog into the store, please check in with us first
so we can wrangle our cats. Thank you.

Please note: We only have a small percentage of our stock online, so please e-mail us if you’re looking for something you don’t see. We’re also happy to provide photos of any book you’re interested in – just ask us!
