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.


PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY HIRING, AND WE DON’T EXPECT ANY OPENINGS IN THE NEAR FUTURE. We’d like to ask that you not send us job inquiries or resumes at this time. Thank you for your understanding.

hallshirt2016THEY’RE HERE! The 2016 Halloween tees have now arrived, and we think they’re our best yet! This time our design borrows from a vintage graphic to create a giant book crawling with Halloween characters. These shirts are 100% chocolate-colored cotton, printed with (are you ready for this?) glow-in-the-dark ink! That’s right, let these babies soak up a little light, and you’ll be rewarded with a ghoulish green shimmer after sunset.

We expect these to go quick, so don’t delay – order yours now! Shipping (domestic U.S.) is only $2.00 (for foreign, we’ll quote you our cost).


zeus&halteeWe still have a few of our 2015 shirts, featuring artwork by Australian artist Greg Chapman. Click the Paypal button below and choose your size. We’ll even throw in shipping (U.S.)!



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

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!
