In the age of digital downloads, finding an actual bookstore is no easy task. It’s even more surprising, then, that Alexander Book Company spans three entire stories, while staying true to their independent spirit. Locally-owned and operated in the heart of downtown San Francisco, between Union Square and the Financial District, Alexander’s carries books for every brain. Their huge selection and open space occupies three floors, making for a great place to spend a few hours or an entire afternoon. Peruse the stacks, pull out some favorites or just grab a seat to browse the first couple of pages of your next favorite read. Aside from current new release and national best-sellers, Alexander’s also shows their love for local San Francisco authors and chefs by featuring many of their books and publications.
