The Tattered Cover

In hearing about the new plans to move the Denver’s Cherry Creek Tattered Cover bookshop, I was worried that this move would cause a downward turn for my favorite reading locale. I am relieved to know, now, that this will not be the case. With moving to the Lowenstein Theater, the Tattered Covers stock size will stay the same, there will be a coffee shop – am hoping for a free wireless connection as well – and best of all, free parking.

I am anxious to check out the new location, come June, but will miss the feel and atmosphere of the Cherry Creek location. With all the easy online ordering and cheaper prices, going to an ‘actual’ bookshop seems to have turned into a special event, instead of just something you do. It’s nice to step into a book shop and be able to browse through the books, pick out a few, get a coffee then sit down and read.

On a side note, Frank McCourt will be reading, tonight, Jan 30th, from his new book “Teacher Man” the Historic LoDo location.
