mysteryImaginationBookstoreThere aren’t many truly remarkable independent bookstores left. The Mystery and Imagination Bookstore in Glendale is one of them.  A favorite hangout of late science fiction legend Ray Bradbury, it’s a magical, cavernous place that’s every book lover’s dream.  However, the current economic environment is making it tough for them to survive.  We don’t ask a lot of our listeners and readers, but if you’re planning on some book purchases, consider buying them from them.  Remember that Christmas is coming, and if you’re not buying for yourself, buy for a friend or family member.  Every reader likes books.

They have thousands of books listed on their eBay store, and tens of thousands more in the store itself, located at 238 N. Brand Blvd. Glendale, CA 91203.  Right now everything they have is 50% off for the walk-in traffic, and 20% off through eBay.  We can’t think of a better time to go seriously nuts buying some books.
