Untitled Document Are you naughty or nice? Heterosexual or homosexual? You know what, it doesn’t matter because Circle of Books has something for everyone under the sun. There’s not too many places near Los Angeles where you

can catch up on world news and porn at the same time – yet this bookstore created a double-sided shop that let’s customers choose between anything sexual or intellectual. Circle of Books is also one of the few places around L.A. with a huge selection of items that cater to gay and transgender communities.


Unlike typical newsstands, newspapers and magazines highlighting gay issues sit on the same shelves as the Los Angeles Times, and lesbian literature is also available. Books of general interest fill the shop, but don’t be surprised when you stumble across topics like spanking or being a dominatrix.


When it’s time to take a break from reading, rent a movie or buy one for your home collection. Gay, lesbian, transsexual or heterosexual, fantasies on film are a hot commodity at Circus of Books.


Books aren’t the only things for sale. Lubricants, condoms and kinky toys to add a little spice to your life are always in stock along with novelty items, jewelry, smoking accessories, snacks and drinks.


Sorry Silverlake fans, but West Hollywood is the only location hosting the Circus of Books Gallery. This special event honors the community by opening the door for performances, book readings and exhibits featuring the works of local, breakthrough artists.

Hours: Both locations are open seven days a week, 365 days a year from 6 a.m.-2 a.m. For more information, visit www.circusofbooks.com.
