Welcome Visitor:

Peace Love Books


Since 1974, Between the Covers has been a Telluride tradition for both locals and visitors. With over 10,000 books, maps, and cards, plus 100s of magazine titles, a bustling children’s section and events calendar, we are a creaky floored busy haven. Need something we don’t have while visiting Telluride? We’ll gladly special order it for in-store pickup. Want something to be here when you pull in to town? Buy online today and choose in-store pick up when checking out. Looking for an eBook for your non-Amazon devices? Just click on the Kobo eBooks box on the upper right to start reading "in the cloud." 

The cozy cafe tucked in the back, High Alpine Coffee Bar, serves a regionally roasted blend, pastries, and conversation. A cushy couch, free Wi-Fi, sunny deck, and a Local's Art Wall round out the atmosphere. A great place to hold a small meeting or a children's birthday party!

BTC is fiercely proud to be an independent retailer and is a member of the Telluride Merchants Association, American Booksellers Association and Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association.

Thanks for shopping local first, it matters SO much!
