The people who work there are friendly and professional. Great service. I found a great deal on a puzzle, a game (for gift), also a book for my plane trip. The card selection was what I went in looking for but I found some other good deals with great prices! They currently are going out of business. The prices are 75% off the cover price of most used books. Books under $7.99 are selling for $2.00 each. Yellow stickers are new books and are typically 20% off anyway... Green stickers are rare and fantastic finds with great prices. Book shelves are for sale as well... WOW. Spinners, furniture, store decorations, and book holders .. they tell me everything must go. Love this store; it's sad to see it close for good

TODAY'S BOOKS AT YESTERDAY'S PRICES

Annie's Book Stop stores have been the leading pre-read book stores since their beginning in the early 1970's. In the late 1970's the original Annie (Anne Tryon Adams), a Lawrence Massachusetts native, began franchising throughout the New England states, and eventually as far as Florida, Arizona and California. The book shop originally specialized in the romance genre. Annie's Book Swap and Annie's Book Stop are the same. Annie's started as a Book Swap, but many of the newer stores were named Book Stop. The remaining eleven stores are individually owned and operated by independent booksellers and are not associated with one another except by trade name.
 
Annie’s Book Stop of Laconia has been serving the Lakes Region and surrounding area since Memorial Day weekend in 1983.
Our store is organized by genre, then by author and title.  We continue to have the characteristically strong collection of various romance novels. We pride ourselves in our strong collection of mysteries, science fiction and westerns. We also have self-help selections, classics, historical fiction, non-fiction, history, adventure thriller, inspirational, local interest, and young adult, to name a few! We are not a thrift store. We do offer an alternative to purchasing new books at new book prices.

We have a room dedicated to children including chapter books, board books, and beginning reading books. We have a wonderful local section including books written by local authors, and books about New Hampshire.

Annie’s of Laconia offers new and used puzzles by different manufacturers including: White Mountain Puzzle, Ravensburger, Melissa & Doug, and much, much more! Come and see what we have in stock!

We also have unique bookmarks, book covers, book lights, greeting cards (House Mouse, Oatmeal Studios, and 
Leanin’ Tree), games, Melissa & Doug puzzles and activity pads and etc. You never know what treasures you'll find.

New Books
Although Annie’s Book Stop is typically a pre-read bookstore, we do offer a new book service. We order books and offer a discount on most new books. There is no shipping fee if you pick up your book at the store. If you wish to have a book shipped directly to your home, then we charge shipping and handling fees.

Hard to Find Books
We offer assistance with ordering out-of-print and collectible books not found on our shelves.

Gift Certificates are available in any amount, please ask a staff member at the desk. Gift Certificates are usable at any Annie’s Book Stop location.
