Gambler’s Book Club
Warning: shopping in Vegas’ Gambler’s Book Club can change your life. Maybe you’ll become a winning sports gambler, a craps table commando, a new Las Vegas historian, or even a poker writer. This is a one-of-a-kind indie bookstore a short ride from downtown. Owner Howard Schwartz, the ‘librarian for gamblers’, is a meat loaf-loving Vegas legend who has helped authors and F.B.I. agents decipher Sin City locals for decades. His story about the shop is as noteworthy as the gaming books inside; his files should be put in a museum. If you’re looking for a ‘system’, how-to book, or any book at all that has to do with gambling, it’s right here.
