Reviews for Dog Eared Books


They're picky, but it's one of the few places where you can attempt to sell books.

A bit out of the way, but an incredible place! Hard to leave once you start diving into their collection.

I found it!! – I have been looking for years for a signed Camus. I found it! I feel like I found a treasure beyond all treasures. The Holy Grail. Thank you!

You never know what offbeat title you'll find at this eclectic, affordable bookshop. – The Scene
This popular Mission District shop--part of the local mini-chain that also includes Phoenix Books and Red Hill Books--is always hopping, with buys being made at the front counter and bookworms browsing the packed stacks for the latest additions. The clientele ranges widely in age, race and sexual orientation, as befits a shop that doesn't limit its holdings to satisfy any one demographic.

The Goods
The stock is mostly used, with a small selection of arty recent remainders on the front tables. There are strong selections in pop culture, music, film, queer studies, poetry, Eastern philosophy, travel literature and vintage children's books. You'll also find 'zines and small press chapbooks, an entire shelf dedicated to McSweeney's-related titles, and a smart mix of current and contemporary comics. Don't miss the small and very good new and used CD section in the back, featuring indie pop, punk rarities and offbeat '60s collectibles.

Great books, informed staff – Dog Eared Books stays open until 10, has a knowledgeable and friendly staff, AND buys books for cash or trade. My only beef is that some very common paperbacks are priced unusually high, but maybe that's due to the ever-increasing trendiness of the Mission. Great selection of 'zines and comix, too.
