Bookstores in Denver, CO
If you can figure out the insane parking situation around Pearl Street, be sure to visit Trident Booksellers and Café. Better yet, skip the parking and utilize some sort of public transportation (or a bike!). Just get there. The café and book store are attached so grab a latte or cup of joe before you browse to enhance your book-shopping experience. They buy used books on a regular basis and the staff is really laid back, but helpful. When you’re done browsing, pull up a chair on the patio for some killer people watching, as only Boulder can offer.
For over 30 years, Capitol Hills Books has been a mainstay on Colfax Avenue. This charming store is full of personality, reasonably priced books (many of them used) and a large selection of unique books. When you step off of Colfax and into Capitol Hill Books, the urban buzz is almost silenced as the cozy calm of this well-loved book store takes over. While their children’s selection isn’t fantastic, fiction-lovers will find this store particularly interesting. Collectors of quirky, one-of-a-kind and vintage postcards will love it here as well. Need to send a book? The staff at Capitol Hill expertly packs and ships to any location in the States.
