26 Years Experience


We are a locally-owned Independent Bookstore located in Parker, Colorado.  We cater to the needs of our local community in Douglas County, Colorado.


Teacher Wish Lists are available in-store!

If you’re ready to get a start on your holiday shopping, audiobook memberships through Libro.fm make the perfect gift!

You choose the membership (1, 3, 6, or 12 months/credits), your gift recipient picks their own audiobooks, and you support Books are Awesome with your purchase. 

BONUS: When you buy a 12-month audiobook gift membership through Books are Awesome , we’ll get half of the retail price—that’s $90 which significantly impacts our bookstore and can help offset lost revenue from COVID-19.

Libro.fm audiobook gift memberships are available worldwide, and you can purchase them for yourself in addition to giving them as gifts. If you want to gift a specific audiobook, you can do that too!

The Girl Who Wrote in Silk
Kelli Estes

This was a wonderful historical fiction book set in Seattle, WA. I loved the intertwined stories from 1886 and now, and learned more about how the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was enforced by the public. A great story. -WMore »
