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!

This Bookshop was been in business since 1745. It's a great place to shop. If they don't have the book your looking for, they can get it in 2 days.
