Adobe Books one of my favorite bookstores in San Francisco is closing. Located in the Mission it is one of those old-fashioned used book stores that used to be everywhere in New York that thanks to Amazon et al have all but disappeared.
Somehow, this being San Francisco and all, I thought maybe Adobe Books would live on forever protected by some good faerie. Sadly that is not the case. Everything is on sale and the place is filled with great books, so if you are in SF or going anytime soon you must make a trip down to 16th street and Albion in the Mission and do some serious shopping.
Book shop, art gallery, community space and a great place to read a book and fall sleep on an old couch, Adobe Bookshop is the real deal, they indeed don’t make them like this any more.
