Awesome Collection 2/29/2012

Adds a calming sensation on the Sunset Strip. Book Soup is one of the few indie bookstores, and it's great for literary geeks. Not too big, but it does render images of an old school library. They also offer great signings as well with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. more

One Of The Best Bookstores 5/18/2011

This is definitely one of the better bookstores in the Los Angeles/West Hollywood area. Although it's physically mall, this store has one of the best selections of literature in Los Angeles; additionally, they have readings from various authors. In the heart of the Sunset Strip (Sunset Blvd. at Holloway Dr.), this is the finest bookstore for the most progressive literature. more

An old fashioned treasure 12/18/2008

This store is across the street from our office but I know many who travel far to come here and they say its their favorite book store in LA. This is not a barnes and noble or borders. Its small, intimate, edited, and feels like a place of the past. Good art section and intl magazines. Written from my cell phone. more

This is a Bookstore 7/24/2008

This place has everything as far as book stores go, and if they don't have they'll get it for you. Without all the mass consumer qualities of a Barnes and Noble. Really cool neighborhood feel, they have books you won't find anywhere else. Including a pretty cool selection of used books. They also have great readings from well-known authors. If you're looking for a cool neighborhood book store, this is it. more

Great for Book Signings 6/12/2007

They get some great authors in there for book signings. Eclectic selection of material, worth a look. more

my kind of book store 2/20/2007

I got off work early one day, so I decided to check out this little bookshop across the street, and I fell in love with the place. Other chain bookstores I have been to that have a rather sterile and commercial feel, but BookSoup still maintains a cozy, neighborhood book-store environment. When I walk into the store, I feel like I've just been engulfed in a sea of books as shelves of books are towering over me. Perusing through the shelves, I see that there are many recommendations and comments by the staff, which I think are pretty helpful. more

chill local bookstore 6/29/2006

i saw saul williams here for the first time--brillant! its nice to see a bookstore like this among, all the borders and barnes. great selection of taschen books too (nice, inexpensive coffee books). you can get lost in here. check out their local events from time to time..they bring in some good people. Pros: events, good selection, fun to browse Cons: hard to reach books, tight space more

Wow. Just Wow... 6/28/2006

Incredible selection, super friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff. Not to mention the many, many in-store appearances by famous authors and celebrities. It's a bit pricey, but if that's the cost for the selection and service they provide - so be it. Highly highly . Pros: Selection, Service, Selection Cons: Street parking only more

Winding aisles of great titles 6/29/2002

Great selection and atmosphere. Aisles invite browsing, and broad range of books that are off the beaten path. Staff is friendly and somewhat helpful. Biography, movie and art sections are extensive. Parking off Sunset difficult. Pros: Atmosphere, Selection Cons: Parking more

Great bookstore 5/15/2002

This is a great bookstore, with eclectic titles and a helpful, knowledgeable staff. While obviously lacking the comprehensive selection of Borders and Barnes & Noble's, they nonetheless manage to stock a large quantity of interesting items. Not your typical Sunset business. more
