NOW CLOSED

It was great but it is now closed. It closed several years ago. It is out of business. It combined with Bear Pond Books in the same city of Montpelier Vermont.

I love browsing through all the books at Rivendell Books. The customer service representatives are always helpful and seem really excited to research a book. It is always a great experience shopping here.

A little cramped in the aisles, but great selection of new and used books. Independent store - lots more fun and character than one of the big boxes. Helpful staff.

It was an interesting bookshop that had a lot of things that I didn't think that they would have.
