SoCal, What's Good?

The Iliad Bookshop

What it is:
It's one of the largest used bookstores in Los Angeles. They've got everything from bargain bin paperbacks to rare first editions.
Why it's cool:
Their massive and diverse inventory is a marvel. It's great for exploring — at some point you're bound to stumble on a true gem!
You should know:
Allergy alert: Currently there are two friendly cats, adopted by the store, that wander and greet customers — or they curl up in cozy spots for naps. (Mostly, it's the latter.)
