Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

It’s a new month at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside. Crunching leaves, crisp air, apples and pumpkins everywhere… our favourite time of year, with its mix of cozy and spooky.

Our October publisher specials reflect these elements… one seasonal classic, THE HALLOWEEN TREE by Ray Bradbury, and one brand-new anthology, DON’T TURN OFF THE LIGHTS, a tribute to Alvin Schwartz’s time-honoured SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK. Both titles are discounted 42% from retail price.


We are continuing to bring you a carefully-chosen selection of special events as we navigate doing business during COVID-19.

VIRTUAL EVENT: Saturday October 17 at 2:00PM – Zoom Meet&Greet with picture book author Josh Funk, creator of the LADY PANCAKE AND SIR FRENCH TOAST series!
