The Eclectic Reader sells used, out-of-print and rare books. I opened in October 2011 after moving over 12,000 books from my house and garage on West Mulberry St. to a location in my own neighborhood (Cedarwood Plaza with King Soopers) at Taft Hill Rd. and Elizabeth.
After two years there we lost out lease to a national pizza franchise. Seven months in storage and then have re-opened at Cimarron Plaza at Drake and Shields near Pulchinella Pizza.
The current inventory is between 17 and 20,000. The ambiance in the new store is lovely…everyone comments on it…and customers are always impressed with the selection of books.
Monty-cat has returned as the bookstore cat and is always ready to meet new friends and solicit more pets.
The Eclectic Reader specializes in non-fiction, modern fiction and literature for the independent reader and strives to obtain books that have substance and are scholarly.
We have a smaller collection of entertainment reading than used bookstores typically carry.
The store is located at 1119 W Drake Rd Unit C-20, Fort Collins, CO 80521
