L.A. is losing another bookstore, at least physically. On August 21st, Dawson's Bookshop will leave Larchmont Boulevard for the world wide web. "Starting this weekend until August 21, the store is having a moving sale with over 3,000 titles on sale for up to 75%. Expect to find a lot of photography books," notes neighborhood style blog Mondette. The once-downtown store celebrated its 100th birthday in 2005, making it the city's oldest bookstore.
