Hi, I'm Jake. I opened Longmont Books in December 2022. It's been my dream to have a small, cozy bookshop since at least 2016. (That's when I can remember first telling someone about it.) 

I spent 10 years as an ESL teacher, mostly in Asia. I taught elementary kids in South Korea and high schoolers in Vietnam.

Originally I opened a pop-up bookshop inside my local brewery in Denver in May 2021. The focus was solely travel literature, but now I've broadened the selection just a bit. Inside Longmont Books, you will find a carefully curated and handpicked selection of non-fiction books... memoir, biography, essays, humor, sports writing, politics, business, and of course travel. 

Along with books, I'm also heavily interested in building a community space where people want to spend time. Take a look at the events calendar to see all that is happening inside the shop. Hope to see you soon!
