Your favorite L.A. book, Round 2: Vote for your favorite nonfiction

Davisfatherboyle

In our wildly unscientific query to readers Tuesday, we asked for your favorite books about Los Angeles and got a wide, overwhelming response. This is the list of 19 nonfiction books that were closest to people's hearts. Vote for your favorite below -- just one vote this time. The top vote getters will go into a final poll with works of fiction and masters of Los Angeles literature (that poll is still open, by the way).

If you don't see your favorite below, leave it in the comments and we'll add it to the master list.

Where have all your editors gone? You have the title of the Sugarman book wrong! It's "No One Here Gets Out Alive," not "No One Gets Out of Here Alive". Please fix this.
