My family goes to Bethlehem at least twice a year, and we always stop in at the Moravian Book Shop. The shop is quite large, stretching along 3 or 4 storefronts, and has a very varied selection. The first (farthest uphill) seems to be holiday and Bethlehem tourism related stores. Lots of beautiful ornaments and glass stars. The next is... More

Find things Moravian, eclectic and more. I love the Christmas decorations and the souvenir stuff. Browse through the bookstore for local authors, topics and more. Home garden and even chocolate for that sweet tooth. I love wondering through and have even eaten there on occasion. A great place to shop when in Bethlehem.

I really like this store. There is a huge diversity of goods and it's great for gift shopping. But as its name implies it is a bookstore. So imagine our surprise when we asked for the art book section and there really wasn't one.....cookery books galore, books on sports, gardening, history, and of course far too many books about ghosts,...

My wife and I visited the store today(12-23-13) to do Christmas shopping for family members. We are from out of town and waited to get to Bethlehem to do our shopping. We both are 66 years old and I have hip problems which limits my ability to stand for long periods of time without resting it some. We were shopping... More

This store is much more than a book store. Lots of specialty foods. Lots of Christmas decorations. Great selection of unique books. Nice way to spend an hour or two or a cold winter day. They also serve food.

From the main menu, to the desserts and coffee...then books,and book-lovers' accouterments, there is no better place to spend a couple of hours. Oh, let's not forget the gift items and crafts!
