Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

Happy Holiday Shopping Guide! Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, the “bigger on the inside” bookstore at 65 James Street, is happy to present our 2019 recommendations of gifts for the winter holidays.

This time, we’d like to introduce you to our vast array of non-fiction books. A book in this category is a great gift to give if you know the person’s interests. We have books on so many subjects it’s not possible to name each and every category, but I’ll try and list some of  our most popular ones. This will be the first of two blogs on non-fiction.

First of all, we have many new books about Astronomy, from Col. Chris Madfield’s an Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, to MOON: An Illustrated History by David Warmflash.   All of these books are at least 20% off the cover price, as are all our new books, and some cost even less.

New Astronomy

Other new books on Astronomy and hard science topics are also available, like the National bestseller, Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku.

New Physics

We also do have many pre-read  paperback books on the subject, at 50% off the cover price, like starter books Peterson’s First Guides Astronomy; An Instant Guide to Stars and Planets; and 101 Key Ideas Astronomy.


Biographies are very popular, as well.  This year, several new biographies/autobiographies  have come out about well known and beloved performers such as Julie Andrews and Elton John. Several books (and a new movie) have come out about Mister Rogers, too.

There are many, many biographies written in the past about historical figures and some more recent ones, and our shelves have a plethora of them.  By the way, did I mention that our used Hardcovers are only $3.99? Unless you find them in our $2.99 Hardcover Alley.

One other type of new Memoirs we are getting in are about Sports figures, like Baseball and Basketball players. In particular,  I’m Keith Hernandez, and Basketball Junkie.

New Sports Bios

Speaking of Sports, with the PawSox coming to Worcester, people in this city are becoming a bit more baseball crazy. Ok, so we always were sports crazy. Well, have we got some books for everyone. As a matter of fact, on Saturday, December 14th, we have an author of a sports book, Hub Heroes, coming in to do a book signing at 2:00 PM.

New Sports

Seriously, we do have quite a few pre-read sport books on many different sports: Golf, Soccer, Football, Baseball (of course),  Fishing, Basketball, Women’s sports, and more.

That’s all for this edition. In our next edition we’ll cover History and – No, I think I’ll let you wait and read it for yourself! Have a great day, and stay warm.
