previously loved books in Englewood


My Wife does this blogging thing called Friday Feast, one participant mentioned, her used bookstore in Denver. Curious my wife asked about it, and we finally made a trip up to visit. We loaded up a box full of books that we had finished reading, mostly hers since I like to keep mine for re-reading if they’re good, and made a day of being in Denver.

The Attic Bookstore
is a cooky place for sure, with more character than you’ll see on your first visit alone, you’ll have to go back. If you miss the animatronic Frankenstein, and Wolfman, or the alien baby fetus in the sci-fi section, look again.

The owner has a system of credit setup where you earn credits based on what you bring in, Sci-fi, general fiction and I think Hardback, maybe more. You get to use credits for each genre if you’ve earned them, else it’s cash-n-carry. We didn’t get much Sci-fi credit this last visit, so I’ll be going through my library finding those books that while good, aren’t going to get re-read, and we’ll head up to the store again.

My wife and I are avid readers so this place is likely to become a place we visit frequently, especially since we’re both light railing it up from the ‘burbs for work every day.

If you’re in Englewood and have some previously loved books to trade in, stop in and say hi. The two cats are nice, and friendly too!

    Since I am a bookaholic, I’ll add this store to my list of must visits. It will probably save me bundles of money. Thanks for the info.
