  • If you're an avid reader and into books this will be a must-see if you're in Boulder. I actually rank it as one the very best bookstores I've seen in the US outside the major cities. Fantastic selecti...  more »
  • The only problem I had with this cute little bookstore (which actually isn't so little-it's a lot bigger on the outside than on the inside) was that despite its size, it felt a little cramped. But tha...  more »

  • The Boulder Book Shop is a small, yet cozy and warm store on a cold Boulder day. With a large inventory of books on multiple levels of the library, there's every genre here with plenty of books to sift through. Chairs and couches cam be found all around the floor, allowing customers to read through potential purchases. The shop is silent except for the soothing, relaxing music playing quietly around the store. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the inventory. All in all, the Boulder Book Shop is my favorite book Shop and a home away from home.
  • Great selection, helpful staff, and a beautiful building. Make sure you visit the entire shop, both up and down stairs. If you have kids, that section is rather large and can keep you busy. Good selection of magnets, chocolate, and stuffed animals as well.
  • This store is wonderful and feels like a maze from some fiction book. I like the reading room upstairs with great classical music and comfortable-looking chairs. Their used books are a little bit more expensive than other stores, but their selection is nice and the used books are usually in good shape.
  • A fun local store with new and used books mixed together. They have a number of "hidden" areas as you explore all the different floors of this old building. Prices are reasonable and they have a loyalty program that costs a bit but pays back if you regularly buy more than $100 of books per year.
  • Large selection relative to geographic location. Database is ancient and desperately requires updating. Used books are a bit overpriced. Nice reading spots save this one.
