Tattered Cover Book Store

Some people buy T-shirts and shot glasses on their travels.

I buy Christmas ornaments and books.

Honestly, nothing makes me happier than roaming around an independent bookstore on vacation, especially when it’s in a great building.

Tattered Cover Book Store is a Denver landmark and one of the best bookstores I’ve ever seen.

They’ve been in business since 1971, starting with one location and growing to several in the Denver area.

The selection is extensive and impressive. It’s also well organized and easy to navigate.

A handful of strategically placed chairs invite shoppers to linger and a greeter at the door is available to explain safety rules.

One thing that really sets them apart is that staff picks can be found throughout the store. These selections are identified by a card that explains why they recommend the book.

I wish every book store did this!
