6. Historic San Francisco, Russian Hill Bookstore

Part history book and part tour guide, Rand Richards' Historic San Francisco is a wonderfully written tribute to San Francisco's varied and interesting past. Packed with maps and vintage photographs, Rand takes you through many of the city's landmarks and lesser known sites, giving a well-written and concise history of the area, as well as tour information, hours of operation, prices, and contact information. This is a highly recommended book for locals and tourists alike. -- Cris Pirvan, bookseller

5. Flour Water Salt Yeast, the Booksmith

This is a lovely book, a thorough, loving architecture of bread: How to do it, what to do with it, how to adjust and develop and refine your bread making techniques. This is a perfect book for beginning bakers, or for someone who is about to be one. -- Amy Stephenson, events coordinator


4. Fears of Your Life and Imaginiationally, Phoenix Books 

Michael Bernard Loggins is a local author and artist who works at Creativity Explored. He has two books, Fears of Your Life and Imaginiationally both which are terrific. Filled with charm and pathos, they're great to dip into for inspiration. -- Mei Levenson, manager
