We discovered this wonderful Bookstore, on 2nd St. in downtown SF, on our first Trip to this great City many years ago, and we make a point of coming back whenever we're in Town. This time - Thursday March 12th - we just about managed to fit it in, as the evolving Coronavirus threat, and an imminent Travel Ban, forced us to abandon our original schedule. They have an impressively wide range of Books & Magazines, well laid-out on 3 levels, offering a truly pleasant experience, in these days when traditional Bookstores are, sadly, so rare. And, on some past occasions, Staff Members here have made extra efforts to help us find just what we were looking for. Closing-time was not far off, so we made our selections pretty promptly - the Sales Assistant was both friendly and competent, as well as having a wry sense of humor, which we also appreciated. 'More than worth at least one visit!

Really good bookstore with a wide variety of books and magazines. I live in a country where English books are difficult to come by and are very expensive so I love American bookstores where there are always discount offers. In fact I only paid full price for a tourist guide and some magazines and filled up with about 10 books all brand new but at bargain prices. Keep up the good work Alexander and I will be back and buy even more the next time.

Alexander is a wonderful haven for book loves in downtown San Francisco. The selection of books is broad and diverse, with an impressively rich range of fiction titles for a smallish bookstore. We were surprised to find, for instance, all the latest novels by German writer Oliver Pötzsch that we've had to special-order at our own local bookstore. The staff are cordial and helpful, too, something that is much to be appreciated in any bookstore, where introverted store owners or staff can sometimes be less than inviting or cordial to customers. If I have any criticism of Alexander to offer, it's that there are practically no places to sit and leaf through an interesting book — this in contrast to the famous City Lights bookstore on Columbus Ave., whose top-floor poetry room has inviting chairs and interesting vistas to be glimpsed through the room's windows. I recommend Alexander as a cultural oasis, a relaxing, spirit-enriching place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of downtown — especially if you enjoy books and reading.
