August Announcements!

It's August! What is it about summer where the days just fly by? Despite having longer hours of light, it seems like the days blink away. Let's enjoy these short months, known as a New England Summer and fill it with books. Because before you know it, fall is here (as well as the new fall books!) and we will be nicely chilled again. 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, Libro.fm. 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!
