Between the Covers Bookstore

224 W. Colorado Ave.
Telluride , CO, 81435, United States
TEL: (970) 728-4504

Housed in a narrow 19th-century building, this independent bookstore contains an old hardwood floor, which the owners lovingly describe as “creaky and crooked,” and wall-to-wall shelves lined with everything from bestsellers to cookbooks. The shop also has an extensive selection of children’s literature, as well as regional books, poetry collections, and local author picks. In addition to books, the store carries a variety of CD’s, handmade greeting cards, and maps of the surrounding area. The High Alpine Coffee Bar in the back is a popular local gathering space with free Wi-Fi and freshly baked pastries.

Insider Tip:

After browsing the shop, head across the street to catch a film at the single-screen Nugget Theatre, located in a building that dates back to 1892.
