What Our Expert Scouts Say


In the heart of Los Feliz is Skylight Books, another vital bookstore in Los Angeles run by people who devote their life to books. In addition to the extensive selection of all genres, they also hold events and readings that bring the book-loving community together. I've met several friends bonding over David Foster Wallace, Roberto Bolaño, and even Wilco (the band). For $25 become a Friend with Benefits and receive 10% off any book and 20% off selected best sellers and featured titles. And while you're there, say hi to Franny, the store cat.
