The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

As the year 2020 progresses and COVID-19 continues to influence many of our daily activities, we here at the little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside continue to monitor the safest ways of conducting business for our customers and our staff.

To that end, contrary to what we stated last week, we will be postponing some of regular in-person events indefinitely. Specifically, we are putting our weekly Spinning Yarns social and our monthly DOCTOR WHO meetup back on hiatus until further notice.

We do have events scheduled for this weekend, two virtual, one in-person.

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!

Please register on Eventbrite! Further details can be found there.

IN-STORE EVENT, Saturday, October 17 at 6:00PM –Rainbow Readers Monthly Meetup! The Rainbow Readers of Massachusetts is a LGBTQIA book club that meets once a month.  The title for October, IN THE VANISHERS’ PALACE by Aliette de Bedard, is available for purchase either in-store or via our website.

Please RSVP by phone at 508-796-5613 so that we may observe capacity guidelines.

In the meantime, we still have plenty to offer you as Worcester’s independent full-service bookstore.

  • Check out our Youtube channel! We have author interviews and Halloween read-alouds all queued up for you.
  • We offer gift certificates in any amount, either for purchase in-store or via mail order.
  • And speaking of mail order, we are happy to ship purchases anywhere in the United States. The base shipping and handling cost for USPS Media Mail is $4.50, whether it’s for one book or for twenty books. Other items can be shipped via USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail, and shipping via UPS is also available; please inquire about costs via telephone or e-mail.

Our October publisher specials are flying out the door like witches on brooms! THE HALLOWEEN TREE by Ray Bradbury and DON’T TURN OFF THE LIGHTS, an anthology tribute to Alvin Schwartz’s time-honoured SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK, are each discounted 42% from retail price.

In addition, we’ve put a number of spooky and horror-themed graphic novels on sale at extra discounts for this season of frights and screams. Check out SUPERNATURAL LAW, OVER THE GARDEN WALL, GHOSTBUSTERS, and more!

Thank you for making our shelves your destination.
