Events Buzz Monday: Bringing The Outdoors In…

Marking another turn of the wheel of the year….

As October draws to an end and overcast skies become more the norm, it’s time to turn our sale carts from outdoor sidewalk specials to indoor bargain hunts.

Rather than a general mishmash of markdown titles, you’ll find one cart dedicated to literary fiction, one cart dedicated to children’s books, and one cart dedicated to cookbooks and DIY titles.  These carts will be maintained within our cozy little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside from now until Spring returns. Join us indoors where it’s snug, have a complementary cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa with us, and find some great reads that you won’t see elsewhere!

Our mission has always been and continues to be the value proposition for central New England and beyond.

  • 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 ALWAYS 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.
  • We have received a fresh stock of comics and magazine preservation supplies… comics bags for Golden Age, Silver Age, and Current Age titles, as well as Current Age backing boards. For a limited time, our prices are $3.75 per 100 bags, any size, and $7.50 per 100 backing boards. Compare that to the going rate of $14.00 to $18.00 per hundred.
  • 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.
  • And, very important as we start loading up events for our Fall and Winter calendars… if you cannot make it to one of our author signings but want an autographed copy held for you, please let us know!  We are happy to have prepaid books personalized and / or autographed for you at the event, and to hold them for pickup at your convenience, or to be mailed to you.

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!
