Meet the Colorado-based Boulder Book Store


“Probably the most popular section in our store is our Staff Recommendations case,” says Stephanie Schindhelm, marketing & promotions manager at Boulder Book Store in Boulder, CO.

“Our booksellers are all readers, and we love to talk to customers about books. We can help you find the perfect book for anyone, whether it’s the hot new book or something obscure that no other store carries.”

This personalized service explains why this indie bookshop — which caters to a mostly well-educated, left-leaning crowd — has thrived since opening its doors in 1973.

Schindhelm mentions that Jen Sincero’s You Are a Badass and Randall Munroe’s What If? have been selling especially well lately, not that customers are in a hurry to ring up their purchases and leave.

“Our store is filled with lots of nooks and crannies,” she says, “making it the perfect place to explore and get lost in while discovering great books.”

Boulder Book Store is located at 1107 Pearl St. in Boulder, CO. Find them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and check out their boards on Pinterest.
