* Please note that the online catalog does not necessarily reflect our in-store stock. Before coming to the store in search of specific books you saw on our website, please contact us so we can check on their availability. (For used books call 303-480-0220 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
West Side Books is an independent bookstore in the historic Highlands neighborhood of Northwest Denver, providing new, used, and unusual books to the community since 1997 — over twenty years! We also sell audiobooks through Libro.fm, digital books through Hummingbird, and both through Bookshop.org.
We encourage you to visit us in person if you can, since nothing compares with being in the store, but we've also put together recommendation lists to make online shopping easier. Check out our staff picks, specially curated lists, and award-winning books!
If you want to explore on your own, you can browse a wide selection of titles, or search for a specific book or author using the red "SEARCH ALL NEW BOOKS" box on every page. (Scroll down to find it.)
Remember, too, that it's always worth checking if we have a book in the store — and possibly used — before buying it through our website. Just call, email, or visit to ask.
This purple brick building contains many wonders.
We are a large bookstore with tens of thousands of books, used and new. The books you see on our website are all new books that our distributor carries. This means that we can order any that we don't currently have in stock, and we can also have them shipped directly to you. Before coming to the store in search of specific books you saw on the website, please contact us so we can check on their in-store availability.
If you're looking for a used edition of a title, just ask! We have many more used books than new books, and we're always happy to check our shelves.
