Carpeting Denver: Five Denver-Exclusive Bookstores You Should Check Out Before Christmas

Denver loves to read! As a young, literate city with ever-growing culture and civic life, Denver has a high demand for books and boasts some of the regions best bookstores. Whether you’re looking for a dusty old Dickens edition or the newest Dan Brown novel, Denver has a great variety of new and used bookstores to suit your tastes. Our carpeting Denver experts suggest these unbeatable bookstores where you can find page-turners to fill those cozy winter evenings.

Tattered Cover: Now a Denver tradition with three expansive locations across the Metro area, Tattered Cover started out as a modest, 950 square foot store in Cherry Creek in 1971. These days, it beats out national chains like Barnes & Noble as the go-to bookstore in Colorado. With events, book signings, and reading clubs, Tattered Cover is still a hip cultural fountain.

Capitol Hill Books: Revered as an astoundingly organized used bookstore, Capitol Hill Books boasts a large and diverse collection in its modest downtown location on the corner of Grant and Colfax. Open since 1980, Capitol Hill Books partners with Tattered Cover as an old Denver tradition for avid readers, book collectors, and state congressmen.

West Side Books: This eclectic bookstore in the Denver Highlands has something for everyone. Offering new, used, and rare copies, West Side Books is a great place to browse some shelves, hear a musical performance, meet an author, hear a talk, or spend any afternoon.

Murder by the Book: This old-fashioned house on Pearl Street specializes in one thing—murder mysteries. Voted Denver’s Best Bookstore in 2009 by 5280 Magazine, Murder by the Book is a charming spot to settle down with a book, even if murder mystery isn’t your genre.

The Bookies: Open for more than 40 years, The Bookies caters more to kids’ education. It has an incredible supply of children’s books, games, science kits, crafts, and gifts, and a well-picked adult section for parents to browse as kids lose themselves among the shelves. With events for kids at the store and at school, The Bookies really jumps off the page to give children better lives.
