    As someone who works in the, ahem, literary media, I have to tip my professional cap to Boris Kachka and everyone involved in putting together this endlessly clickable tour through bookish life in Los Angeles, called “Lit City.” From the best bookstores to the coolest micro literary scenes to the pleasures of reading outdoors, this expansive compendium of features has something for every reader who’s ever headed west with a dream and a tote back full of books. Extra special shout-out to David L. Ulin for this incredible history of literary Los Angeles and its evolution “from a literature of exile to a literature of place.”

    Every city should have one of these!
