Skylight Books on Vermont Avenue in Los Feliz will be opening a new store in the coming months. Via email from the shop: "This summer we will open a lovely new storefront next door, where we will move our books on art, design, music, photography, film, theatre, fashion, architecture, graphic novels and magazines..." The Slylighters are looking for a name for the locale as well: "Since we want to stop referring to it as 'the annex,' or Skylight Junior, we need your help. It will still be Skylight Books—followed by [something]. It has the same kind of high ceiling and skylight. I kind of think of it as an upstairs/ downstairs kind of thing (if we had an upstairs, anyway). So send your ideas for a name to firstname.lastname@example.org and our favorite 3 names will get a $50 gift certificate!!" [Racked Inbox]
