If you live in the Denver, Colorado metro area you probably already know about the Tattered Cover Book Store, that bastion of independent book sellers. What you may not know is that they have three locations now: downtown Denver, East Colfax and Highlands Ranch. I have very fond memories of visiting their (now closed) store in Cherry Creek. Floor upon floor of books, comfy chairs and tables, it was intoxicating and overwhelming.
Life moves on, and so do bookstores, but their three other locations no doubt have as much to offer as the old Cherry Creek store. Including (crass commericalism alert!) Sailing an Alien Sea. If you like to buy indie, buy local or just buy stuff in front of you, check out the Tattered Cover’s Rocky Mountain Authors’ section.
