Â Diesel Book Store is one of the few Independent bookstores that are left in California. The owners are John Evans and his partner Alison Reid, they started their first bookstore in 1989. Currently they have three stores: Â one in Brentwood, one in Oakland and one in Malibu.
There was a time in 2011 when it looked like Diesel would not be in Malibu any more. There was a landlord tenant dispute, which turned out to be a short eight month void in Malibu. Now Diesel is back with a vengeance. Very close to the previous location, but better. They are housed in a Spanish Revival commercial building with a central courtyard. It has a nice spill-out area, and they hold the book signing and reading events in the courtyard. This place is quaint and more conducive to book lovers.
I feel lucky that we live in Marina Del Rey, which is about a 25 minute drive on the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway to get to Diesel Books. The Brentwood store is probably about the same distance to us in Los Angeles Traffic, but I prefer driving along the Pacific Ocean, watching the waves vs. the cars heading to Brentwood.
