The Book Train

< Back Home

We are a general interest bookstore selling new books of all kinds. If we don’t have a particular title in stock we are happy to order it for you at no additional cost if it is available.

Colorado and the Rockies:
We have an excellent selection of books on Colorado with particular focus on Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley that includes hiking, camping, fishing, four-wheeling, history and sightseeing.

We carry the bestselling fiction and non-fiction books from the Indie Bestsellers list, based on reporting from hundreds of independent bookstores across America. The top five hardback fiction and non-fiction bestseller titles are discounted 25%.

Kids’ Corner:
We have children’s books for all ages, from baby board books to books for older teens. Kids love our activity books and coloring books. Pat the Bunny is a great baby shower gift and no one gets tired of reading Dr. Seuss out loud!
