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. We also sell audiobooks through Libro.fm and digital books through Bookshop.org.

We encourage you to visit us in person if you can — 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, too!
