Avid readers should check out $2 Buck Books, a used book store in Denver, Colorado where paperbacks can be purchased for $2; hardbacks for $4; a large selection of well-read books for $1 and even a large number of romance novels for just two bits each.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not! Located in the King Soopers parking lot at Monaco & Leetsdale, $2 Buck Books has over 4000 square feet of books by authors from Asimov to Zig Ziglar in every imaginable genre. Not only does it have a vast selection of non-fiction books, it also has an entire wall of Children’s & Young Adult books. Its children and young adult books range in cost from twenty-five cents to four bucks.

$2 Buck Books also has a small selection of new books available at a discount over retail prices. These include books such as Dean Koontz’s Deeply Odd for just $8.46, Weather for Dummies for $5.85, Funnybone Books: Fractions Practice Puzzles (Grades 4 – 6) for $5.42 and Chocolat: Extraordinary Chocolate Desserts for $11.24.

Where does $2 Buck Books get all its books. When asked, a representative of the company simply said, “People like you.”
