I haven’t written about the closing of Metropolis Books in downtown Los Angeles yet, largely because I though if I just ignored it, it wouldn’t actually close.
Just like with the recall election and G.W. Bush’s second term, however ignoring it didn’t work. Here is the story from the Los Angles Times on Metropolis Books as it closes its doors.
Downtown still has another wonderful bookstore—the Last Bookstore, which I wish the LA Times writer had mentioned. It’s in a lovely space. Go visit, and spend lots of money.
