There's something about stepping into the inspiring meccas of information that are LA's indie tome treasuries. Like Record Store Day for audiophiles, bookworms finally have their own retail therapy celebration with this weekend's inaugural California Bookstore Day.
Taking place this Saturday, May 3, the full-day fête offers deals on exclusive books and art, author meet-and-greets, live readings, gratis grub and more at over 90 bookshops throughout the Golden State. LA participants include insider-beloved Diesel, A Bookstore's Brentwood Country Mart and Malibu locations, Los Feliz essential shop (and feline-faved!) Skylight Books, West Hollywood's Book Soup, Pasadena's Vroman's, Venice's Small World Books and many others.
Stoked? Check out the full list of participating shops here.
