  • An absolute must for shopping in SF. Great atmosphere, great choice from comic books to classics, cool prices, as they have a lot of second-hand. Hard to leave this place.  more »

  • Great selection of books and best customer service. Warning: If you love books, do not enter this store if you have other things on your "to do" list that day. I am frequently advised, "Uh oh.....step away from that bookstore..." I've been to The Strand and Powell's. I'll always prefer Green Apple. It's a heavenly time warp.
  • If a bookworm died they'd be sent to rest in peace for eternity at Green Apple Books. Things are as they should be here, with limited walking space and as much retail as can still be fire-code-approved filled with bookshelves and books. They sell new and used books, but had a particularly strong offering of books signed by the author. I picked up Artemis signed by Andy Weir as part of my holiday shopping. The staff is knowledge and outgoing. At the Clement St location they have separated out general fiction and comics/music into two different buildings on the same block, giving the one a more classic cozy feel and the other made a geek culture rabbit hole. Both spaces are well worth the visit.
  • Love this place! I come a couple times a month to get books. Nice and helpful people. Good variety on new and used books. Wonderful place to walk around! They also close late (10:30pm) :)
  • Local bookstore with educated staff, and a slew of used books. Very friendly and helpful, was able to find what I was looking for with ease. A lot of options, and a new age sort of feel with the style of books on display and overal selection. Cool little store, i would recommend to any book enthusiast.
  • I have wanted to come here. I enjoyed here for about two hours. Thank you for giving me a good time.
