In 1985 Brand Bookshop opened its doors to downtown Glendale, California, a stone’s throw away from the historic Alex Theater.  Today, Brand Bookshop is one of the largest used bookstores in Southern California with more than 100,000 volumes in over 1,500 sections.  They offer free parking behind their building, experienced staff, air-condition, and classical music all day. all day.

A great way to spend a Saturday is to get to the Brand bookstore when they open at 10am and spend a couple of hours going through your favorite section of the bookstore.  They are really well organized, well lite and have a super knowledgeable and helpful staff.  Then after spending a couple of hours looking and buying books head across the street and have some of the best sushi in town at Sushi on Brand at 308 N Brand Blvd., Glendale, CA 91203. On my last trip to Brand bookstore I bought the 54 volume “The Great Conversation” for $240.00  It was a steal.  My Son, Darrell Griffin, Jr. had bought the same set at Half Price books in seattle.
