Is It Open? Buy Your Last-Minute Gifts at These Denver Bookstores

Maybe someone invited you to a holiday gathering at the last minute. Or you found out there’s a gift exchange at that party you’re going to. Or maybe you’ve just been in denial for weeks that the holidays were coming, and, you know, you need to buy some presents and whatnot. Whatever the reason, we’ve all been there; you need a last-minute something, and there’s no better last-minute something than a good book. But what bookstores are even open?

This time of year, that’s a good question. So we thought we’d supply you with a rundown of a few of our favorite Denver booksellers and their holiday hours.
