Now -- if you needed something immediately - I would call them up, find out if they have a book and have them hold it at the checkout counter. Then, you can just walk in, get on line, pay for it and be out. Strand is a wonderful source of amazing books for awesome prices. Sometimes you just need to know how to get them to work for you!

Astounding and amazing in size and scope, but sometimes frustratingly uneven, this is where I come when I want to browse for a book or wander across something unexpected. If I want to FIND a book, like a specific book, I'll go to B&N first and Borderlands Books second. A must visit for book nerds. A minor madhouse during Christmastime.

It's hard to review Borderlands Books without reviewing Borderlands Cafe. Luckily, they are both solid so this should be easy. It's wonderful to have a specialty bookstore on hand for all the science fiction/fantasy/and horror aficionados out there. I'm not too much of a die hard but even I still recognize the usefulness of a specialty bookstore that has the obscure titles you'll never find in a Books, Inc. Plus, there's also the cafe... One of the best mochas in SF, I kid you not. The staff is so friendly, nearly to a fault. Basically, don't go in unless you are in a chatty mood. Also, check out the meat and cheese platters if you're looking for a nice afternoon snack while reading your favorite Asimov or Philip K. Dick.

Right in the heart of the Mission District, this great book store exists! A wonderful place to get lost in books. Rare, new and used books. I love the lighting, decor and staff! Recently went to support a local bay area mystery author, R. Franklin James for a book signing.

I can give this store no less than five stars, and here's why. Endless miles and miles of books at a small discount as well! Even though it's touristy and huge, it somehow still feels intimate. Even on the weekends, the lines, although long, don't take long to get through. I really love this place, and with so many book retailers going out of business, I truly hope Borderlands Books is here to stay.

Pretty cool place to wander looking for books, and then have some coffee while you read.
