For 15 years Red Letter Books has been my favorite stop on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado, and in the last 10 years one of the only reasons I went back to Boulder.
It has an eclectic selection and a great vibe. One of my first great book finds happened at Red Letter:
In the late 90s I found an old paperback copy of Abbie Hoffman’s Steal This Book.
I’d venture say at least one full bookcase in the collection came from Red Letter. Maybe more.
I’m glad to see it’s staying open with a new owner. Glad I still have a reason to return to Boulder.
