A unique used book shop where you'll find quality used and new Books, Maps, CDs, DVDs, Games, Toys and Puzzles and New Musical Instruments and Accessories at great prices in a comfortable and clean environment. 

Recycled Reading opened it's doors on June 11, 2011 after I said goodbye to the corporate world and set off on my own.

On May 3, 2014 I opened my store at it's new, expanded location at 20 Main Street, Bristol VT - I added more used, new, and bargain books as well as cards, blank books, book accessories, and related gifts.  

Recycled Reading is primarily a book store, but now I carry more instruments.   Click  Music at Recycled Reading for information on instruments & accessories.
