March Musings

Who would have thought that a year could go by so quickly and yet so slowly. If anything, this pandemic has shown us is that time, is a social construct. Day in, day out, mask on, mask off. It's like the movie Groundhog Day. Oh wait, that holiday was in February. But, what doesn't change is our love of books and our constant seeking of the right read for the right mood. (See our Staff Picks and new releases below.). And, since we are over the hump of winter, and mud season has begun, audio books could be the way to go, if we find that we don't have any reading focus. You can still support Belmont Books with our audio partners, 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!
