About Us

Since we opened our doors in 1990, we have been Steamboat's largest full service bookstore and the locals' favorite meeting place for Good Books, Good Coffee and Good Friends.

Who are we? Real people who read books and admire great writing. We stand ready to help you find your next great read. Check out our recommendations – good reads from our staff and friends.

What about our store? We are a full service, independent bookstore, with extensive collections of current literature, fiction, history and memoirs, young adults. We feature a large children’s collection, and our famous treehouse reading space where our youngest children can escape. We carry the Indie Bound selections, NY Times best sellers, and as a sponsor of the Literary Sojourn (www.literarysojourn.com), a full selection of the Literary Sojourn authors. When you’re away from Steamboat, you can find us on the web at www.steamboatbooks.com. In addition to our carefully hand selected inventory of books, we stock wonderful greeting cards, games, puzzles, candles, journals, chocolates and a varied assortment of unique gifts. We can help you select the perfect gift, wrap it and even ship it.

Our café serves the best coffee drinks in town, pastries, Big Train drinks, smoothies, soups and salads for lunch, and wine in the evening. We are pleased to be serving Storm Mountain Coffee, roasted locally in Oak Creek.

The store, in new digs on 9th Street in historic downtown Steamboat Springs, is open 7 days a week from 8 am 'til 7 pm, later in the evening during peak seasons.
