It’s a cold and windy day out-of-doors, but it’s cozy and warm here at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside. We hope everyone has shoveled out from Friday’s big snowstorm.
We’re definitely expecting March to come in like the proverbial lion, but where it may or may not go out like a lamb, we’ll still be here to offer the best selection and discounts on new and used books in the city of Worcester.
March brings us thoughts of bunnies and ducklings as well as lions and lambs. Check out our picture book display for ideas for animal-themed storytimes.
And let’s not forget that it’s March Madness season for basketball lovers! We’ve got a great spread of NCAA, NBA, and WBNA titles to choose from.
Our publisher specials for the month of March run the gamut from science fiction to women’s studies to literary fiction to high fantasy. All publisher specials are discounted 42% off retail price.
