Saratoga Springs, NY
honestly, the only effort green apple books requires of their customers is that they walk through the door and after that, you're genuinely taken care of. i don't even mean by the physical body of a staff member, although they seem great. instead, you're guided by interestingly shelved books, broken into categories such as "books you would never see on oprah's list" and the more obvious "staff picks," but under many of these specifically chosen works, an impressively worded description of the book is taped to the shelf, complete with the who, when, and why we should read them. this store is hardly generic and completely fascinating. i was lost. hours could have gone by and i would have been perfectly content browsing and perusing pages of authors and works i think i would have never discovered if it weren't for this shop. you'll be lost, too.
