Nerding it up doesn't get more charismatic than doing so at Booksoup in L.A. Located in West Hollywood on Sunset Strip, directly across from Tower Records and the first Spago restaurant, it's the ultimate floor-to-ceiling situation to find ones next read. 

Founded by Glenn Goldman in 1975, the infamous bookstore has been blowing the minds and filling the shelves of celebrities, readers, writers artists and general cool kids ever since. It’s got that L.A thing, that rock’n roll vibe synonymous with Sunset Strip and the stars who frequent it are also regulars at Booksoup. With an extensive selection of 60,000 books in which you'll find particular focus on photography, art, film, fiction and music, it’s the place to find rarified reads, unexpected volumes and limited editions not to mention, a space to get lost in for an afternoon of sheer escape. 

Of note are the staff picks in which the stores’ connoisseur book lovers make some of the most unapologetic recommendations that tend to steer you in new directions and have you turn pages you’d have missed without using the notes of guidance scattered throughout the store. Most book stores are generic and require little regard but Booksoup soothes the soul and excites your mind all in one essential visit. 

The store regularly hosts author events and carries many signed copies of today’s hottest titles. Be sure to keep up to date with their take on what's hot at www.booksoup.com.
