Within the last year Barnes and Noble as well as Borders have closed their stores. Even though Borders was technically in Sherman Oaks, there is still no book store for the Encino area.

When they were planning to close the Encino branch there was a lot of protest, FB groups etc. Of course none of it mattered because the developers of the plaza didn't care and just shut it down, replacing it with yet another CVS (even though there is another one less than 5 miles away.) There is high demand for a book store in this area.

Does anyone know anything regarding book stores in Encino? Maybe of one opening up soon?

EDIT: Another bookstore, "portrait of a bookstore," Has closed on May 17th.

Doubt it, unless you want to drive to either Studio City to Bookstar (Barnes & Noble) or Woodland Hills (another Barnes & Noble). I don't like either one of those book stores, and I still mourn the loss of the Sherman Oaks Borders. I went there the first day of their going out of business sale (they were in the first wave of closures, before the company went belly up a few months later), and couldn't go back because I found the atmosphere so depressing. Vultures who had never even set foot in a book store until that day were ruining the store.

I do buy books from Barnes & Noble now; it seems like a very bad idea to have to rely on Amazon for everything!

Apparently not, or the stores you mentioned would still be around.

If you think a market still exists there, open your own book store.
