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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
