  • Vroman's has managed to thrive in an anti book climate, probably due to the facts that it has something for everyone (niche intellectual topics, kids' section, gifts aplenty) and that it is a Pasadena...  more »

  • This is one of the oldest bookstore around that I know of. Considering its size it's impressively well stocked. I rarely have issues finding a book here (unless it's so obscure that no book store would carry it). It's always clean, tidy, and organized. The atmosphere is always quite comfortable. And the cafe is top notch. It isn't the largest book store but it's always a good one to visit.
  • This place is great! A lot of history here, and not just in the books. Seriously, read up on the history of this place. It's just as interesting as the bookstore. The staff was all very helpful and didn't seem to be bothered by all the questions, as it was my first visit. They have a large assortment of books here, as well as a coffee shop if you'd like to settle in and read the book you just purchased. I'd recommend this place to any avid book reader who would like to buy a book and help maintain such a great business.
  • My favorite bookstore of my lifetime (or any lifetime for that matter). They have author in store visits almost every night. And by author I mean former Presidents, Secretaries of State, First Ladies, top entrepreneurs and movie stars. Best bookstore in L.A. bar none. All the latest best sellers and indie favorites, local authors, story hours for the kids. Also extensive gift collection and seasonal gems.
  • Great independent bookstore. Very unique. A very wide variety of items, including pens, journals, cards, children focused area, bags, socks, and more. Large variety of books on almost any topic one can think of. I would give it 5 stars easily, but costs are higher here and I understand why. I bought a pen that I know I could have found cheaper, but I wanted to support the store. I still love Amazon and their pricing so 4 stars is the best that I can do.
  • A 2 story bookstore that carries so many types of books and also carries various knick knacks. I love how they have guest authors talking about their latest books & signing them. In this age of digital books, it's wonderful to be able to walk into a store to find what you want. Their staff is very friendly & helpful. Their variety of children books are amazing too.
