I’ve been to bolder book store a few times and each time I see more and interesting books and items. I picked up two books for my grand daughter . They have a outstanding children’s section.

This is a great bookstore located on the Pearl St Mall. Lots of great bargain books, a decent magazine selection, local interest items (maps, etc) and more. Architecturally interesting, with many different rooms and levels. Support your Local Indy Bookstore!

Best place to stop on Pearl Street! Three floors of every book you can imagine. I could spend hours here. Places to sit and read with a fun atmosphere. Don’t miss the basement level too! Prices are fair and the staff is friendly and helpful.

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 selection of books on Colorado history and culture....More
