Book City - RIP

Last Monday, Book City's long run on Hollywood Boulevard ended when the entire stock in the store was sold to buyers who will sell the store's contents in an on-line bookstore. After several months of trying to make to bring Book City to Main Street in Downtown Los Angeles, despite the best efforts of everyone at the table, ultimately, it did not happen. Book City, however , will continue to sell extensive collection of Hollywood collectibles and scripts from the below website...

.... but - for awhile - at least - the store itself is no more.

There are, however, still more books stored in warehouses and talks will resume shortly on possibility of using them as a basis for a vintage bookstore in the Historic Core of Downtown.

Stay tuned.

On the better news front, Arnold Herr Booksellers which lost its lease on Fairfax, has signed a new lease - also on Fairfax - and will not be closing as was previously feared.
