Events Buzz Monday: Swiftly Fleeting Summer

It seems as though we were just writing about the beginning of beach books season, and now we’re in the midst of back-to-school sales and last-minute required reads for students heading into the classroom for the new term.

  • Our New Arrivals shelf is overflowing with used book trade-ins, and we continue to add to our publisher displays of new books for children, teens, and adults, as well as our  vintage titles from the 1890s to the 1970s.
  • Our new books are discounted at either 20%, 25%, 30%, 40% and 50% off list prices for your shopping needs.  As always, our used books range from 50% to 90% off of cover price, and there are additional savings for our newsletter subscribers.  We also offer an educator discount for teachers, certified homeschoolers, and licensed daycare centers.
  • Our selection changes daily, with customer trade-ins of used titles as well as shipments from publishers and wholesalers.  You are bound to find something for any interest, and we take special orders and do book searches as well.
  • Don’t forget! We also offer “from our door to your door” mail order fulfillment, just one of the many ways in which we serve you, our customers, as Worcester’s full-service bookstore.

We had a wonderful time with author Marie LeClaire this past weekend.  Autographed copies of her interconnected magical realism titles THE LAST YARD SALE and A SOLDIER’S LAST MISSION are now in stock and ready for purchase.

Thank you also to all the teachers and homeschoolers who came out for our annual Educator Appreciation Sale last week, and to everyone who got to reap the benefits of the 2019 Massachusetts sales tax holiday.  We saw lots of new faces who hopefully will become old friends.

Here’s our schedule for upcoming events… 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!
