Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside


Ah, winter in New England… Let’s just leave it at that.

Of course, if you don’t want to go out in winter weather, you can always utilize the mail order service at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester. Give us a call at 508-796-5613 or check our website for more information!

ABSW is also on TripAdvisor. Have you had a good experience at our “bigger on the inside” book store? Consider leaving us a review!

In our news for 2017, we are reworking our consignment program. There will be a new page on the website soon, but if you are an author looking to consign their books with us, make an appointment with Trisha Wooldridge via email at

A very special thank you to everyone who braved the snowstorm to spend an afternoon with author James Chambers for his release of the graphic novel Kolchak: The Night Stalker, The Forgotten Lore of Edgar Allan Poe – and much thanks to Jim for coming out in the storm! We do still have some signed copies of the graphic novel and a limited supply of bonus comics for anyone who purchases a copy! So, Kolchak fans, if you were snowed in, you still have a chance to get your hands on these new Kolchak adventures!
