If I lived in Denver, I would probably work from Tattered's coffee shop every day of the week. The coffee they serve is fantastic and the atmosphere is great for reading, working and meeting up with friends. This bookstore is very unique in its design and book selection. If you are even somewhat of literature-geek, you need to stop by.

It was recommended that I place a visit to this establishment. I am really glad I did. They have many unique features that place this bookstore way above any that I have been in. They have way more titles and the atmosphere is great. it has been in businees for over forty years.

High ceilings, old wood floors that creak and smell good. This blessedly indie bookstore has been in operation in Denver for more than 40 years. This location is at the northern end of the 16th street pedestrian mall in Downtown Denver. I don't know that this place has every title you might ever want, but a visit to this store brings you into contact with all kinds of books you didn't know you needed to read and with other people who know about and enjoy books.

If you enjoy a bit of atmosphere with your book browsing, stop, browse, relax. Busy lives can be enriched by holding a good book and reading. Technology is great, but there is something about the act of holding and flipping the pages. This is a fun place to do just that.

If you love bookstores, you have to stop here-the LoDo branch, especially. The building is pretty old and neat, and the selection is great. You will definitely find something here.
