I love my Kindle because it makes reading in transit very convenient, but downloading a new book just doesn’t compare to the feeling of picking up a real paper book — the joy of flipping through the pages, of running your fingers across the cover art.
But in the age of digital book buying, brick and mortar bookstores are becoming increasingly rare, so this National Read a Book Day (Tuesday, Sept. 6) I encourage everyone to get out there, visit a bookstore or two and pick up something new to read!
2. Hennessey + Ingalls: from Little Tokyo/Arts District Station walk five blocks east on 1st Street then two blocks south on Santa Fe Avenue, DASH A to Traction/Merrick, or Metro Bike station at 3rd/Santa Fe.
And because bookstores aren’t the only place you can get a book, here’s a shoutout to some of my favorite libraries. Feel free to add to the list in the comments as well, the more recommendations the better!
- Central Library in DTLA (Pershing Square Station)
- Pasadena Public Library (Memorial Park Station)
- Cahuenga Library (Vermont/Santa Monica Station)
- Doheny Memorial Library (Expo Park/USC Station)
