Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

Happy upcoming Mother’s Day to all of our friends and patrons who celebrate it! And continued good luck and positive thoughts to all our testing and graduating students.

The weather may be a little crazy this week, but a good book is still a good book whether you’re sitting in the sun or curled up at home during a storm—so stop by our 65 James Street location and find yourself some good books to “weather” your week with.

And so long as the weather is good, we do have our Seasonal Sales Carts outside for your perusal—and one of them is specifically full of literature and classics. So, if you’re brushing up on classic literature for yourself or you need titles for summer reading or classes, check out our carts and see what deals you can find.

ABSW is also making our annual purchases to ensure we can help our friends for their summer reading lists. If anyone has Summer Reading lists from schools, please bring them to the store so we can build our stock accordingly. Summer Reading books fly off the shelves here, so take advantage of the perennial favorites on our sale cart and let us know what you need as early as possible.

We had a lovely Drop-In Craft this Sunday, as we were Making Oz Colorful. If you’re looking for something this coming Sunday between or around Mother’s Day Festivities, we’re having another!

THIS SUNDAY, May 14, from 12:00 to 3:00 PM, join us for Crafty Dr. Seuss. We’ll have crafts and coloring pages, we’ll be reading stories, and more. Remember, all children must be accompanied by an adult.
