I was in Denver on business and stumbled across Tattered Cover. What an awesome bookstore! Go when you have a couple hours free so that you can browse all the shelves, enjoy a cup of coffee and sit among the 1,000s of books. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed wandering around in this large, comfortable bookstore. Found a present for our step-grandson that we think he'll like. Worth a stop if you love books!

Wanted to stay here all day. The staff were helpful when I asked questions. They also sell stamps which is great. The children's area is AWESOME. Loved it. Wish there was something like this closer to home.

Classic "real" bookstore brimming with great reads. Welcoming and comfortable. Help if you want it, but plenty of places to sit, browse, sample books.

Home from home. Bookstore and café and reading room and safe space and rest station for the weary. Fascinating. Plus, locally manufactured knickknacks. Unique.
