Bookish Travel Suggestions? [You're The Expert]

Hello my lovelies!  I'm heading on a trip again, and I'd love some feedback for bookish destinations in the locations along the route.  If you have any, I'd love to work them into our vacay plan.  Tell us about your favorite bookstores, a place referenced in a book you loved, or anything historical in nature, or anything even slightly bookish 'cause we'd love to hear about it. So, please share your expertise in the comments section below!
Denver, Colorado
Wichita, Kansas
Kansas City, Missouri
Omaha, Nebraska
Lincoln, Nebraska
Rock Springs, Wyoming
Casper, Wyoming

I am planning to attend the 51st Annual Art, Book and Craft Fair at Wichita Riverfest, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, Sunday, May 9, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm, Location: Kennedy Plaza & Century II Exhibition Hall.  The 51st Annual Art, Book & Craft Fair is presented by the Friends of the Wichita Art Museum and occurs during the activities of Riverfest. The 2010 Art, Book and Craft Fair will focus on the presentation of high-quality arts & crafts.  If you're gonna be there, email me so we can meet up!

I love the Wichita River Fest and especially that book sale. I've gotten a ton of great books there over the years. Too bad I won't be there this year. Have fun!

For future travel plans ('cause it's a little out of the way on this trip, it looks like), Nabokov finished writing Lolita in Ashland, OR. I don't think you can tour the house, but there's a plaque in the front yard--and Ashland is a great town to walk around in anyway. (We spent 10 days of our longer-than-intended road trip honeymoon there.) Great little bookstore. Pretty famous Shakespeare festival. And if it's your kind of cookie, there's a neat kitchen store with a deli and wine cellar in the basement.
