Love Bear Pond. Love the Staff Picks. I would have given it a 5 star review if their were comfortable chairs to read in and used books. BUT I LOVE THAT WE HAVE IT. MAY IT THRIVE FOR A LONG LONG TIME!

If you want to browse in peace, have at it! There's a special section for books on Vermont, a great kids' department upstairs with a cool reading nook for wee... 更多

Always a feast for the mind! Bear Pond Books has a great collection and it is a stimulating atmosphere. I could wish for a few comfortable chairs for patrons to enjoy. The most fun is to check out the books the staff have chosen to recommend. It's eclectic!
Yes! An independent bookstore, with great staff, huge collection, computer access to whatever might not be on the shelves at the moment...the only real problem is prying yourself away from the stacks and not filling a wheelbarrow with printed material.
Bear Pond is a Montpelier institution and a classic, old fashioned bookstore. Lots of shelves groaning with myriad titles; old,... 更多
