Equator Books in Venice, RIP

equatorbooks-to-close.jpgSunday at midnight is the final closing for Equator Books on Abbot Kinney Boulevard. The owners sent a note to customers and friends saying, "We ask that you come by in the next day or two, say hello, buy a book or record, have a coffee, look at some great artwork, and enjoy the space one last time. It is important for us to come up with some money, so we'd like to sell as much as we can. We really care about and love all of you who supported us, were kind to us, and understood us."
