    Hi Elaine,

    Love the theater bookstore. So cool!
    We have a very cool bookstore in downtown Denver, The Tattered Cover, that is in an old building. Actually I think it winds through more than one. It feels like it belongs in JK Rowling’s world, with the polished wood of the stairs and the nooks and crannies. They make it attractive by not only having an entrancing physical store with tons of unusual books, but they also have a coffee shop with food and a basement where they have lots of events. They have two other locations, one in an art deco renovated theater and the other is in a strip mall. Even though the books are cool at the strip mall locale, it’s never a destination for me, unless they put a very attractive author down there. (It’s an hour drive too!) The only time I visited was for Diana Gabaldon and the line was around the block, and wove in and out of all the bookshelves!

    Having good authors and eclectic books keeps that locale open, but I love the windy old downtown version and the cool retro theater building too.

    (LOL on this post. I initially wrote theatre, but spell check did not like it!)

    I enjoyed this, Elaine. In a few weeks, I am off to Ireland and hoping to see the Book of Kells myself.
