Lonely Planet 2013!

Yep..we’re in the book!


Yep. We are once again in the latest Lonely Planet guidebooks for Colorado. They even sent us this cool new online decal to prove it!

We’re so close to the Colorado State Capitol Building and Downtown Denver that we get a lot of tourists appreciating our bookstore an our wide selections of magnets, postcards and other souvenirs. And of course we still carry thousands of books for your reading pleasure. An affordable used paperback is better than an expensive Kindle any day if you ask us.

Thanks for your continued support and to Lonely Planet for our inclusion in their awesome guidebooks. Please check us out on your next visit to Denver. We’re the awesome store across the street from the Colorado Capitol Building.

Welcoming our small-business supporting customers.

We’ve put out our welcome mat for customers who want to support our small business.

You don’t last more than 30 years as a small business without the support of thousands of customers over that time. We know that there are a lot of people out there who drive past the Wal-mart and log off of Amazon and instead support real businesses in their communities. And we just want to thank those people.

As always, we offer low prices and friendly customer service. We also try to be one of those interesting, eclectic businesses that just don’t exist online or at the big-box. That’s why we greet our customers with a Godzilla, provide staff recommendations for books, offer hand-lettered gift certificates by our resident calligrapher, select a thoughtful assortment of interesting postcards and gifts. We basically do everything a bit differently here and we’re glad a lot of people seem to appreciate that.

So this holiday season consider choosing those cool, local businesses in your community. All of us will certainly welcome your support.

Capitol Hill Books featured on 7News

Holly, the owner of Capitol Hill Books was featured on 7News in Denver last night to discuss our business’ concerns with the bagging on most of the meters on our block for the exclusive use of state legislators.

While it looks like the good folks at KMGH weren’t able to change the way the state has taken much of our parking (apparently they are evoking some obscure state law), they were still able to highlight an important issue affecting us and other local merchants around the Capitol.

And of course, Holly and Capitol Hill Books were able to appear on television.
