Picked up my #lmpbc book from the Tattered Cover yesterday.
I plan to read and send it off soon, as I'm leaving town in early July and won't be back till August. Sooo....for mailing, who sends to who? Shall we follow the order in @suvata's email or switch it up to go due west/ east?
@LibrarianRyan @Johanna414 @IndoorDame

LibrarianRyan Normally we do the order in the email. But I am all for east to west. Cheaper shipping to people that are closer. But that would put one person paying for a longer shipment. using book rate it is not much of a difference, and I am good either way, but I don't want to speak for the group.

BTW the miss the #TatteredCover. I probably say that anytime anyone mentions it.

vivastory Are you going somewhere exciting? 5mo
merelybookish @LibrarianRyan I'm happy to do east to west. I was already slated to mail east so doubt it would make much difference whether it's to NY or MA. Did you live in Denver? And yes, The Tattered Cover is a wonderful bookstore! 5mo

merelybookish @vivastory Well, I wouldn't say exciting, exactly but I am looking forward to it. ? I'm heading "home" to New Brunswick to visit my family in Canada. 5mo
LibrarianRyan @merelybookish Yes, for 5 years. I went to grad school at DU and worked for the Highlands Ranch Public Library (Douglas County) full time as well as Arapahoe County Libraries (hired for the Glendale branch that was a block from my apartment, but kept getting sent to Sheridan), and for Littleton Public Library (one of the worst libraries I have ever worked for) 5mo
IndoorDame I'm happy to do eat to west as well. Let's make a post with the order we're settled on. And have a fabulous trip! 5mo
merelybookish @LibrarianRyan Oh that's cool! I don't really know those areas. I'm in Lakewood so more west. Too bad about Littleton. I find JeffCo libraries pretty good but maybe they vary within a county. 5mo
merelybookish @LibrarianRyan My preferred Tattered Cover is the Colfax location. 🙂 5mo
LibrarianRyan @merelybookish I‘ve been in Jeff Co libraries. When I was there there was a major funding shortage for JeffCo libraries. My fav Tattered no longer exists. I loved Cherry Creek. I didn‘t live to far. Colfax just opened when I left. I went to the HR branch frequently but I know it has been shuttered as well. But then again I spent the most time at the Mall location because that was where the signings were. (edited) 5mo
Johanna414 I‘m good with East to West if that‘s what everyone else would like. 5mo
merelybookish @LibrarianRyan Yeah the locations are very different now! Colfax is where they host most of their signings, although Aspen Grove in Littleton gets the YA & MG authors. 5mo
merelybookish Okay if everyone is good with east to west the order would be @indoordame ➡️ @Johanna414 ➡️ @LibrarianRyan ➡️ @merelybookish 5mo
LibrarianRyan @merelybookish works for me. 5mo
Johanna414 @merelybookish sounds good! 5mo

🌸 I enjoy both my local library and at times my local independent book store #TatteredCover
🌸 I had an acupuncture session yesterday that was totally amazing
🌸The tagged book. If you haven‘t read it yet, you should
🌸I wasn‘t a fan of Before We Were Yours, especially the modern day romance part of the novel. But it seems to be quite popular.
🌸 @BooksandStitches Hello!

hjreviews Acupuncture scares me to death 😬 I‘m such a baby about needles, my family doctor‘s office of 20 years gives me the nasal flu shot still 😅 10mo
Eggs Thanks for playing 😍 10mo

Hanging out and enjoying the party at #TatteredCover. Such a wonderful little bookshop in #Denver. Found this gem. #itsmemargaret

Whimsical.Curiosity @Sills It's just the best right? 😊 11mo
lahousewyfe I so miss it! Which is your favorite location? 11mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @lahousewyfe I love the downtown location but am equally tied to the others. I've lived near each at a different time. We took after wedding pictures downtown so I'll say that one haha. What's yours? 11mo
lahousewyfe @Whimsical.Curiosity I really miss the Cherry Creek location, but I'm a bit in love with the one in the old Lowenstein theatre (Colfax). 11mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @lahousewyfe I never knew the Cherry Creek location! But the Colfax one is awesome. The party they had there looked so cool! Ours was a bit quieter. 11mo
lahousewyfe @Whimsical.Curiosity In the final years, the Cherry Creek location (which was the only one then) had a restaurant on the top story - I think it was called The Fourth Story - which was so good. The checks came in old books. I was sad when they lost their lease. I think the downtown location has a bit of that old vibe. 11mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @lahousewyfe oh I'm so sad I never got to go to that location, it sounds magical! I do love grabbing a coffee and having about at the downtown location. 11mo

Beatlefan129 That‘s one of my favorite things about Tattered Cover, reading all their staff recommendations 12mo
Coleen_Nieto @Whimsical.Curiosity I saw the picture and thought thday looks like tattered cover! Then I read it IS tattered cover! I love that place! 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @HufflepuffGirl90 @AmyG @Beatlefan129 @Coleen_Nieto Tattered is the best! Have y'all heard of their new program Friends of the Tattered Cover?? I joined last night. There's going to be a party in January. We should meet up and say Hi if y'all are members! 12mo
Beatlefan129 @Whimsical.Curiosity I wasn‘t sure if I wanted to pay for that program, but we should have a Tattered Cover meetup regardless! 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Beatlefan129 I definitely had to ask about it before I'd commit. I really think they created it to help keep the Indy bookstores alive. I was sold when they told me about special invite only parties lol. Either way I'm down! 12mo
AmyG I live n Vail and only get to the Tatterred Cover maybe twice a year...usually when it‘s warm...when I visit my daughter in Denver. 12mo
Coleen_Nieto I'd love a meet up! Yes I joined a couple months ago. I got to see Sally Field! 12mo
HufflepuffGirl90 A meet up would be so great! I haven‘t heard of the program, but I‘m definitely gonna look into it! 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @AmyG that's awesome! They should put a Tattered in Vail! 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Coleen_Nieto that's wonderful! I almost went to that. Are you going to the party on 1/11? 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @HufflepuffGirl90 let me know if you join and we can meet up at the 1/11 party! 12mo
AmyG We actually have an amazing bookstore in Edwards called The Bookworm! 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @AmyG that's lovely! I'll drop in there whenever I pass through. I love little bookshops. 12mo
HufflepuffGirl90 @Whimsical.Curiosity I signed up and am going to the party on 1/11 at the Colfax location 😊📚💛 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @HufflepuffGirl90 Love it!!!! We may wind up at Aspen Grove but if we go to Colfax I'll let you know!! 💕📚😁 12mo
HufflepuffGirl90 @Whimsical.Curiosity perfect!! I‘d love a meet up if we can swing it ❄️💙😊 12mo

My local bookstore does this all the time and I just love the mystery and magic behind it!! #TatteredCover

I'm gonna do this for my friends/family for Christmas I think. ❤️🦖

inthegreensandblues I love blind date with a book so much! My library did it once and it got me started with a series that I've been reading for years now. ♥️ 1y
inthegreensandblues @Whimsical.Curiosity it was Laurie R. King's Mary Russell series. I wasn't familiar with it, so when I got done reading and then realized there were many MORE , I was so excited! 1y

Whimsical.Curiosity @inthegreensandblues I'll have to look into it! I love a good series. 1y
AnneEssDee Mary Russell series is one of my faves! 1y
Whimsical.Curiosity @AnneEssDee yay! What's it about? 1y
AnneEssDee Mary Russell is Sherlock Holmes' MUCH younger, equally genius, feminist, bad ass wife. They solve mysteries together, natch, and are my fave Sherlock spinoff. Probably. There are a few others I also love a lot. 1y
