A social media and photography darling, The Last Bookstore is no stranger to pop culture. Famous for their sculputures, nooks and caves all made out of overstocked and damaged books, and creatively shelved books (like books arranged by color to mimic a rainbow), the store has become a go-to for patrons who wish to curate their Instagrams or make a bookish themed photoshoot. But despite the artistic attention, the store is still made to be a haven for genuine book lovers. From opening the door, the musty decadent smell of old print and well- worn pages immediatley hits your nose upon entrance-- every bibliophile's favorite scent sensation. The bookstore mainly houses reasonably priced second- hand books, and well- kept vintage publications. The building used to be a bank, explaining the high ceilings and marble pillars. The space allows books to be hidden on purpose in unseeming places, motivating readers the pleasure of hunting and searching. Every corner of this Los Angeles gem is made for the true book lover and coming from a mainstream standpoint, it seems to be working.

Another hangout spot for bibliophiles out there! Tucked away in the neighborhood of Sheung Wan, this two-storey bookshop offers local and Taiwanese literary selection and a bit of English pieces. Definitely a hangout spot to get away from, Mount Zero hosts book clubs and fairs, get a chance to meet your favorite authors, plus a discussion of your book picks! This bookshop also has a selection of handcrafted stationery and homewares. They are open from 11 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday. What makes it more engaging is their occasional free books selection at the entrance!
