Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

2010 Halloween Nylis 005Apologies that this became one of those late-night posted blogs, dear friends of ABSW! However, despite the late hour, there is still a lot of good information to be had no matter when you read this.

Here’s a brief bullet list of some awesome things:

  • Check out our Halloween book display!
  • Meet one of our cute little minion bookmarks made by a Spinning Yarns Craft and Audiobook Social
  • In two weeks we have our Spooooky Storytime with the New England Horror Writers (details below).
  • In three weeks, we’ve got best-selling author Larry Correia coming to visit (details below).

Of course THIS WEEK on Thursday, October 15, we are having our Doctor Who Discussion on MISUNDERSTOOD MONSTERS Part II. It’s happening from 7:00 – 8:00 PM. Join us as we continue the discussion of the Misunderstood Monsters of Doctor Who. (Though, we like to be careful and not give away spoilers from this season!) And before, after, and maybe even while we’re chatting, check out our extensive collection of Doctor Who toys, collectibles, and magazines. We do have one of the largest collections (if not the largest collection) in the Northeast!

Want to know even more details? Here you go!
