A delightful little rabbit warren of a second hand bookshop, San Francisco Books was founded by a group of ex-pats in 1997 and seems to have grown organically out of the conversations of book lovers. Tweedy gents hang around the front desk discussing politics and poetry, while browsers squeeze politely past each other in the narrow spaces between the stacks, ferreting out fiction, guides, DVDs, biographies, pamphlets and much more. But while a faint aura of dusty dottiness pervades, these guys are hugely passionate, knowledgeable and well connected. Just visit their website to get an idea of their stock and the range of their buying, selling and exchanges.
