Boulder Book Store is a place book lovers will love. I like that it has multiple floors and each floor has it’s own personality. The religion and new age self help collection is quite impressive. It doesn’t have a horror section which I found disappointing....More

My wife and I spent hours in this bookstore. They have a very diverse collection with lots of unusual books as well as best sellers. If you want to kill a couple of hours, just stop in this terrific place and look around.

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.
