2526 East Colfax Ave., Congress Park
This glorious indie bookshop occupies multiple floors (which makes for literally countless cozy ready nooks) filled with new and used books of every kind. After almost 50 years in business, they're now a Denver mainstay for literary culture, hosting readings from new authors in their cafes. Once you pick something out, grab a latte—or one of their sandwiches—from the café and snuggle up in one of the couches. For non-readers, there's also Wifi. There's a second location on the other side of town.
