May Announcements!

It's MAY!!! One of the prettiest times of the year, with all the bulb and tree flowers in bloom. Days are warmer and longer. You know what that means? Reading outside! One of the great joys in life. Our love of books and finding the right book, for the right mood, for the right reader never ends. (See our Staff Picks and new releases below.). And, since we are over the hump of winter, audio books could be the way to go, if we find that we don't have any reading focus. Or if one wants to go for a long walk to look at all those lovely spring blossoms. You can still support Belmont Books with our audio partner, As always, we can ship to you or your favorite reader(s).

We so appreciate all the orders and support, and we are so grateful to you, our customers. Stay safe and healthy. Thank you!
