Who We Are

Skylight Books is a general bookstore serving the historic Los Angeles neighborhoods of Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Downtown. Located in the shadow of Griffith Park and its iconic Observatory, our Los Feliz neighborhood is host to many independently owned shops, restaurants, and movie theaters. Our curated selection features the best of literary fiction; graphic novels; children's books; California history and culture; political and social sciences; essays and nonfiction; and books on art, photography, film, and music. We also feature hand-picked magazines and zines, along with a selection of stationery and gifts. Our events program is nationally recognized, and features major touring authors, local favorites, and debuts.

Skylight Books opened November 1, 1996, on the former site of another local bookstore landmark, Chatterton's.


Skylight Books only sells New books - we do not deal in Used, Rare, or Out of Print books.
