This is one of my favorite bookshops of all time. In an age of big box places like Barnes & Noble and Chapters - environments without soul - we should celebrate the independent book sellers who actually make an effort to create a true experience. Each time I visit The Tattered Cover I not only find something new, I leave wishing that I spent more time reading.

There are such great books and the ambiance is amazing. Even though its a chain, it remains personable and keeps the small business feel. It is a truly great bookstore.

I was at the one near lodo. Its in a really cool old building, which seems really fitting for a bookstore! Its laid out really cool and things are well marked so you can find your way rather easily. I did not get coffee, but was tempted to. It seemed like a happening place, a line for the coffee shop told me perhaps I best go back and check it out. But on that day I was on the search for the perfect novel. Which was tricky as the selection of books here is amazing!! They also have a great selection of random little gifts and trinkets. i could spend hours here browsing the shelves and checking out every little nook and cranny. Neat place!

Get a coffee and sit down and enjoy the store. Nice setup and many many books. One of the best visits in Denver.
