Some may scoff that the printed word is a dying art, but Green Apple Books proves that the simplicity of aimless bookstore wandering can provide hours of entertainment – particularly in a bookstore as timeless as the books themselves.
Parking is slim, so grab the 2, 44, or the 38 for direct service. And remember a tote bag – chances are you won’t be going home empty handed.
For over forty years, Green Apple Books has been a literary go-to for voracious San Francisco readers. With its endless aisles of new and used books, Green Apple is the epitome of the bookstore to get lost in. Its wooden floors creak with bookish history, and though the exterior has grown in the last four decades, the interior still overflows with generations of well-worn books.
If its abundant supply of books wasn’t enough, Green Apple sells vinyl, over-sized graphic novels, DVDs, and independent magazines. But above all, it continues to win over authors and readers (and even KFOG!) with its personal charm and a staff devoted to the endurance of the printed word.
