We here at our little bookstore that is bigger on the inside are so happy to be able to tell you about the exciting changes within our walls, rather than having to keep repeating the situation with the repairs outside, namely the parking lot and the driveway entances and exits. It’s becoming the time of year for beach books and travel reads. Thus lots of changing displays here at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester!
- We’ve got the perfect totes for you for your bibliomaniacal needs… upcycled fabric bags made by our very own staffer Dot Woodcock. They are washable and stand up to a lot of everyday wear and tear, since they are constructed out of repurposed jeans, skirts, and belts.
- We have expanded our new mass market selections from one spinner to two… you will find “hot off the press” new releases as well as tried-and-true favorites in a wide range of genres.
- In addition, we’re making our lists and checking them thrice… for your school summer reading titles, from pre-K through high school and beyond. Many required titles are already in stock on spinners and shelves, with more titles arriving every day. Please bring us your lists and let us help you get the best prices for your needs.
We want to thank all our author guests, as well as everyone who came out to meet them, for our fantasy and mystery extravaganza this past weekend with Benjamin Gamble, Walter H. Hunt, Julia Henry, Liz Mugavero [and Molly!], Lisa Shea, and Clea Simon. If you were unable to make it here due to the ongoing road construction in multiple locations around the city of Worcester, fear not! We still have an assortment of their titles on hand, both autographed and unsigned… see below for our Flash Sale!
As a reminder, the majority of our events here at ABSW are free and open to the public. Check out our page on SocialWeb.net!
A special note: there will be no DOCTOR WHO Meetup this month, due to the Memorial Day weekend scheduling.
