Dog Eared Books
Located on Valencia Street in the Mission District, Dog Eared Books is one of San Francisco’s most beloved literary institutions. With creaky wooden floors, a carefully curated selection of new and used books and a loyal clientele of community readers, Dog Eared Books epitomizes the best, most inimitable characteristics of an independent bookstore. In addition to their general interest stock, the store excels in local literature and small press, as well as Beat and off-beat genres. Dog Eared Books also stocks calendars, magazines, notebooks, and even local works of art. A weekly New York Review of Books reading group brings together local readers on Sunday evenings.
