I make it back to Green Apple whenever I get to SF. New and used books, music and magazines, you know a book shop. I always find more than I thought and buy more than I should. Keep this place alive please.

Our next destination was Green Apple Books on Clement St. I try to visit a bookstore anywhere we go and I had added this stop early on. I later found a Groupon for $20 for $40, a rarity for a bookstore, I was quite pleased. Green Apple Books is a great used bookstore with an extensive inventory. I rarely find... More

When you enter this shop you find yourself in two aisles of books displayed with their front faces out and often with little handwritten notes beside them. These books are usually newly published and have been selected by someone or several someones who really are sensitive to the latest word on all sorts of different topics, from quantum mechanics to...

A great place for books in San Francisco. We are from Australia and love the vast range of books available in the USA. Green Apple satisfied our book desires during our visit to the USA in July. Highly recommended! 😊
