April Announcements!

Spring is in the air, that warmth is returning and there is just that sense of optimism that comes every year when blooms begin. Our love of books and finding the right book, for the right mood, for the right reader never ends. It's almost warm enough to sit outside to read especially since there is more light later in the day! (See our Staff Picks and new releases below.). And, since we are over the hump of winter, and mud season is almost over, 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!
