Mystery Bookstore LA will be closing on January 31. @mysterybooks So many authors are scheduled for the upcoming months. How can this be? Linda and Bobby, you've done so much for the mystery community!
Owners Kirk Pasich and Pamela Woods sent out this email this morning.
We simply cannot compete with the Amazons of the world and the impact of the economy. We love the bookstore and mysteries and the relationships we've formed with authors and publishers and agents and publicists. But, we do have retirement to think about (not in the near future!), and family and, well, all of those things that require money. So, it is with considerable sadness that we announce that The Mystery Bookstore, Los Angeles, will--after many years (and as apparently the last-standing bookstore in Westwood, other than UCLA's student store)--be closing
