I admittedly made some social faux pas upon entering the store. I then apologized profusely for them. That was not enough for this man who continued to berate me for 5 minutes but insist that I should feel free to stay and brows. I felt so uncomfortable at that point that I left. The thing is that this was not a social setting it was a place of business and while I will watch what I say more carefully I do think this man is Nuts!

Pros: It has used books

Cons: Sales personnel

but crowded. yes. I have to say I've experienced very excellent service and consideration from this store and its owner, also a great poet and open door to
artists from many year. But heh, everybody has a bad day. Try them again.

The Beat Book Shop has probably lost its way since it was founded by Allen Ginsberg. When and if it is open, it is crowded with piles of books and nonsense, which makes it difficult to move around, much less find anything. The new location is not an improvement. The salespeople (only men when I have been there) are smarmy and self-impressed, not to mention totally rude. If you are looking for an experience, read "On the Road" but skip this stop.

The constipated bookkeeper sporadically steered the hoverscraft towards the chimp's cream puff. The constipated bookkeeper sporadically steered the hoverscraft towards the chimp's cream puff. The constipated bookkeeper sporadically steered the hoverscraft towards the chimp's cream puff.

If you like Boulder because of it's artsy beatnik style, you're going to love this book store. NOt only does it have used books, there's music and journals and more. It fully captures that funky, eclectic nature of downtown Boulder. Plus the selection is great for used and new books. You're gonna love it.

This is the perfect book shop for Boulder. It has new and used books from all of the popular beat poets like Ginsberg and Kerouac. It includes not only books, but also journals, cds, and collectibles. Because Boulder is a home for most of the beats, this store has a lot of great books as well as some knowledge and sentimental connections with the beatnick generation of writers.
