Black Cat Books

This indie shop in the Business of Art Center in Manitou Springs "believes in community and the power of reading to change lives and the world." You can also get a nice glass of wine while you browse. Black Cat is a sponsor of Author Fest of the Rockies, a Sept. 27-28 conference for readers and writers. manitoubooks.com

 

Poor Richard's Bookstore

This perennial Colorado Springs favorite is actually five businesses connected by a name, and passageways: Poor Richard's Restaurant; Little Richard's Toy Store, Rico's Caf?and Wine Bar, Poor Richard's Cards & Gifts and a top-notch bookstore. The front section is a great place to pick up an interesting gift. poorrichardsdowntown.com

 

The Tattered Cover

A granddaddy of independent bookstores, this Denver institution opened in Cherry Creek in 1971, moved in 1986 and then again in 2006 to the historic, renovated Lowenstein Theater on Colfax Avenue. Music lovers know this location (there are two others) is adjacent to the equally terrific Twist & Shout. tatteredcover.com

 

The Book Haven

This Salida store sits only a few blocks from the mighty Arkansas River. It features a unique selection that includes a plethora of titles from nationally-known local authors. The store hosts events such as poetry nights, can special order about anything and proudly sells eBooks in the Kobo format. thebookhavenonline.com

 

Old Firehouse Books

This independent store, housed in a former Fort Collins fire station with a shiny brass fireman's pole, is known for its staff's expertise and the ability to provide books via special order. The shop shares the firehouse with Happy Lucky's Teahouse & Treasures, so you can grab a cup of loose-leaf and then browse the shelves. oldfirehousebooks.com
