Skylight Books' new space next door has settled on a name—Skylight Books 1814—and will be opening Thursday, July 31. Per the Los Feliz shop's newsletter: "On Thursday, July 31 at 12 noon, the new space...named for its address on Vermont Ave...will open for business for the first time. It will be a 'soft opening,' as we will continue to put on finishing touches all month, culminating in a gala 'Grand Opening' on Saturday, August 30. [Racked Inbox]
