Green Apple Books & Music is an independent bookstore in the Richmond District of San Francisco, California.
Green Apple Books was founded by Richard Savoy in 1967 in a pre-1906 building at the corner of Clement Street and Sixth Avenue. In 1996 Green Apple Books acquired its long time neighbor, Revolver Records. The store houses over 250,000 titles, as well as 60,000 available online.
After 30 years Richard Savoy set up a ten year buy-out for Green Apple Books & Music with three long-time employees. Green Apple Books & Music is regularly voted best Used Bookstore and Best Independent Bookstore in the Bay Area by readers of the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and the SF Weekly. In 2001 Green Apple was voted "Best Independent Bookstore" in the Bay Area, this time by San Francisco Chronicle readers.
" Time for some silliness. I first saw this on Bookninja, I think, but I’ve discovered where they live on YouTube. The store is a new and used book store in San Francisco, and it sounds like a terrific place. (Just checked the new book listings there, and they’ve got my book The Walkable City: From Haussmann's Boulevards to Jane Jacobs' Streets and Beyond too. Yay!)
