Joy in Keeping Books Alive at THE LAST BOOKSTORE

Go to the Spring Arts Tower at 5th and Spring in Los Angeles to find more than 250,000 books positioned creatively in a variety of displays across two floors. As a pushback against e-books go and enjoy actual books, including rare books and VINYL records at one of the world’s largest independent bookstores (2005).

Books offer so many benefits:

  • transport us to delightful experiences and lands
  • provide entertainment for individuals
  • teach us about new subjects and topics
  • remind us about our and other histories
  • introduce us to new ideas and concepts
  • challenge us regarding our current beliefs and value systems
  • offer us spiritual guidance so that we may find peace and understanding

I love to touch old books – the tactile experience is great. I love the smell of the pages in old books, as well as the worn pages from readers’ fingers before me. I do not get those sensory experiences from e-books.

The owner of The Last Bookstore has creatively displayed the thousands of books throughout the bookstore – as wall hangings, as a lighted tunnel, as walls, the torn and crumpled pages are displayed as a bush in a pot, as interesting windows through which one may peer and discover, and more.

I found great joy in the visit to The Last Bookstore. Go and check it out! Enjoy, with gratitude.
