Used Bookstores in LA

Question for Los Angeles folk: anyone know a good, fairly large used bookstore in the city? I've got to sell a few tomes in advance of the DC move, and I;d like to do it somewhere with a decent selection. I've been kinda stymied in the search for a decent story, but there's gotta be at least one. Help on this would be much appreciated.

Odyssey book store in North Hollywood. It's fantastic. Aisles and aisles of used books and lots of weirdo book vendors who really know their stuff. I think it's on Riverside and Lankershim. Uh, I could be messing that cross street up. Google it.

Where in DC are you moving to?

I can't remember the name of the store, but it is on Sawtelle about a block south of Santa Monica (where the NuArt and Cinephile are). The place doesn't look like much from the street, but it's a pretty good store.

There's one of those Powell's-esque city-block-full-of-books stores in Long Beach that's somewhat famous (not famous enough for me to remember its name, alas). It's not Powell's, but it's more than your usual Paperback Hut.

Downtown Burbank, of all places, has a pretty good selection of big used bookstores.

Dutton's on Laurel Canyon in Studio City, couple of blocks above Ventura Bl., east side of street.

Do you have a list? I know a couple of celeb book collectors, but they have specific wants.

Howzabout just donating your books to a small branch library? Take the tax write-off and lighten your suitcases.

There used to be a good one right near Grauman's Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd - but I can't remember the name and it was a few years ago.

The store fmguru is thinking of is Acres of books. It has an atmosphere all it's own, and is rumored to be Ray Bradbury's favorite. It also has a specialty used book store that caters to collectors next store (not I believe related).

My personal favorite is Brand Books on Brand Boulevard in Glendale. Really well organized, excellent selection, good prices, and a couple of great no-tax sales per year.

You can also check out a list of used bookstores here: http://www.geocities.com/Athens/4824/na-la.htm.

Yeah-- you'll probably actually make more money with a tax=deductible donation to a library. I just tried to sell some hardcovers to a bookstore and was offered $1 each. I took them to the library and donated them and just claiming $4 each (less than the used bookstore would sell them for) I did a good thing AND got as much in tax deductions as I would have at the bookstore. And-- not a big thing but still important-- I figured the books would get circulated and read by more people at the library. If they can't use the books they'll sell them for more money to buy other books-- a win-win.
