“Give me a place to sit and I would give it 6 stars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2011

What a great bookstore. Whenever I travel, I love to seek out great used bookstores. Sure, those Kindle people can get a book downloaded in a nano-second, but they are still reading a kindle.
I want a book. Used. Cheap. And boy o boy, did I get them at Green Apple.
Located in the Inner RIchmond neighborhood, sprawled out among 3 or 4 buildings is the deliriously wonderful Green Onions.
Outdoor bargain bin netted me 6 books for a total of $8.00. Not a bad start.
Got the 2010 Zagat's for 92 cents plus tax.
Inside I found a fairly decent used mystery section, lots o' great fiction. Much more.
The only drawback, unlike other truly great used bookstores (Myopic in Chicago comes to mind) there was nary a spot to rest my weary bones as I wandered thru the aisles.
Then again, I might not have ever left.
All in all, a great place to spend a day. You cannot leave empty-handed. It's just not possible.
