Green Apple Books reviews
Wonderful bookstore - a fixture in Richmond since 1967. Has an annex a few doors down too. A treasure hunt of a bookstore - leave lots of time to linger! more »
San Francisco is a bookstore town and a bibliophile's town. People love bookstores and don't stop reading books on the subway train. They have all these homey old-fashioned bookstores with fun... more »
Phenomenal bookstore with excellent array of titles in a wide variety of subject areas, the two locations on this block are a throwback to a more genteel era when SF and Berkeley were loaded with bookstores and geniuses who knew everything about everything and could easily find titles on their shelves as well as advise you about which books you might be interested in. While that era might be over it still lives on here, and you'll find additional merchandise other than books ranging from nice writing papers to SF souvenirs to cool gifts. Highly recommended!
This is a local SF institution. If they ever close I will cry and feel like I lost a dear valued family member. This place has been here as long as I can remember. Moved here in 97. I've often said if the authorities were for some reason after me I'd go here in their upstairs stacks to hide!! Don't miss their Annex 2 doors down w their amazing media, vinyl, used books, stationery, travel section. If I had room I'd spend $1000 on just their cooking and art reference books. The fact that their books have hand written staff recommendations and a " you will love any if these books" area is so meaningful. These people know and care about books and their place in helping to shape us as a culture. Hopefully a better culture!! :)
