*Either-Or Bookstore. 950 Aviation Blvd., Hermosa Beach CA, 310-374-2060. Haven't been here since they moved a few years back. People tend to like the store. Their ad refers to a book site at www.thehi-tecrocks.com.
*Crown Books crownbooks.com was under construction. Four in South Bay. "Still the cheapest bookstore in town." Maybe, but their bargain books are overpriced.

Retail prices total $67.80 PLUS 4.99 English pounds, whatever that is, what a deal.
