Who Knew Westlake Villagers Read So Much? Los Angeles 2010 

Book Nook

Run by Friends of the Library in an annex next to the beautiful Westlake Village Library, Book Nook sits on a pretty garden square filled with fountains. This is a nonprofit, and the price is right. Martha is the highly competent manager who can answer all your questions, in this room crammed with books in a well-arranged system overseen by volunteers. Open every day except Monday, with tons of free parking in the lot, they do crazy stuff like periodic sales offering a grocery bag of books of your choice for $3. Normally, hardcover books go for $1, even large coffee-table books in excellent shape, and they tend to include a lot of religion, art, textbooks, biographies and literature. The paperbacks, at 50 cents apiece, are dominated by thrillers, mysteries, science fiction and best sellers. They have a nice, ever-changing selection of new arrivals, making return trips a pleasure. (It’s only a few miles from Agoura Hills’ Book Cellar, so make a Saturday of it.) 31220 Oak Crest Drive, Westlake Village. (818) 865-9230. —N. Jenssen
