The Last Bookstore 洛杉磯「最後一家書店」 Let’s hope The Last Bookstore never lives up to its name. 讓我們期望「最後一家書店」永遠名不符實。
A long-time collector of all sorts of things, Josh Spencer founded The Last Bookstore to take his book collecting—and selling—to the next level. In a digital world, bookstores around the world are closing as customers buy books online or switch to e-books. Luckily for bookworms▼ everywhere, The Last Bookstore is doing very well for itself. Located in downtown Los Angeles, California, the bookstore opened its doors in 2005. Since then, it has expanded and moved into a new building that was originally a bank, so it’s full of high ceilings and open spaces. The vault▼ has been turned into a fun reading room, and like many modern bookstores, there’s a coffee shop in the back. Sticking with the theme▼ of celebrating old technologies, The Last Bookstore also has a huge collection of vinyl▼ records. With art exhibitions, live music, and book signings, there is something for everyone. All of these options▼ mean that The Last Bookstore should be around for years to come. The next time you are in Los Angeles, spend an afternoon at this amazing bookstore.
