Spotted SF / Inner Richmond / Green Apple Books


The best independent bookstore in SF selling both used and new books, magazines, and other nifty items. I’ve been coming here since I was a kid and still enjoy the sound of the creaky wooden floorboards as I browse the ceiling-high stacks piled onto shelves, reading the little detailed notecards of staff recommendations in each section, then plopping myself down on a footstool in one of the corner nooks to flip through the piles of books I’ve gathered. I still love the feel of a book in my hand (over an e-reader) and Green Apple’s prices are super reasonable. They also buy back your good books so you can go back for more.
