Used Books at the Tattered Cover

Come in for some great buys and unexpected treasures!

Used books are a wonderful addition to the thousands of new and bargain books we've always carried at our stores! Colfax, LoDo, and Aspen Grove each has a shelf of "New Arrivals" along with thousands more used books that are shelved alongside our regular stock on shelves throughout the store. All are distinguishable on the shelf by the hot pink label on their spines.
