good used cookbook store at The Good Corner

The Good Corner is, as my friend David Ebrey has noted - is where our favorite local Lebanese place, Sunnin, happens to be right near Ambala Dhaba, the only good Westside Indian place.

Two or three storefronts to the north is a used bookstore where the guy who runs it - Johnny? - a screenwriter who's using his money from the industry to run a used bookstore - has a really fine, great used cookbook selection. Not as large as the cookbook only store in Pasadena, but a nicer selection. When I was there, I picked up James Beard on Fish, and my friend picked up a nice copy of Olney's Simple French and Thorne's Simple Cooking. I also saw but was unable to afford Catalan Cuisin and Bugialli's Tuscany book. The selection of "wow I've heard about this but never could find it anywhere" I've had.

He doesn't give good rates on trade-ins, though.
