September Announcements!

It's September! And you know what that means?! Back to school reading. What hasn't changed is the last minute dash into the store, with students frantically looking for the books on their summer reading list. Is it too much that we chortle when these students come in after their first day of school? And if those days are long gone, we still have so many wonderful reads here in the store. 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, if you are an audio book listener, 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!
