Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

This week’s Events Buzz blog is brought to you by the joyful news that asphalt for our parking lot’s refurbishment is being laid down even as of this writing.  An end is in sight for the long process of upgrades.  We are looking forward to better lighting and smoother entries and exits, as well as the relined and repaved surface at the 65 James Street Plaza.  We deeply appreciate your support, your understanding, and your patronage.

Thanks to everyone who came out for Saturday night’s book discussion of ELEVENTH HOUR by Elin Gregory, hosted by Rainbow Readers of Massachusetts.  We have the June discussion title, ARDULUM: THE FIRST DON in stock, for those who’d like to join us next month.

We hope all our friends at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside had a lovely Mother’s Day yesterday, despite the damp and chilly weather.

And speaking of weather… tomorrow’s forecast promises a May nor’easter!  Never a dull moment here in New England.


We are fully stocked with great reads for your hunkering-down needs, as well as getting a jump-start on this year’s school summer reading titles.  We have set up our classics spinner and are making displays of this season’s required titles.

This coming weekend promises a lot of fun for fans of swords and sorcery, Victorian spiritualism and intrigue, and cozy mysteries.  Check out our links below!

As a reminder, the majority of our events here at ABSW are free and open to the public. Check out our page on!  

Until the parking lot is fully open again, Spinning Yarns, our crafts social held on Monday nights, will be on hiatus. In addition, there will be no DOCTOR WHO Meetup this month, due to the Memorial Day weekend scheduling.
