About UsWho We Are:

Annie’s Book Stop of Wells, Maine has been serving the residents and visitors to coastal Maine’s York County since 1985.  Begun as a franchise in 1975 by Lawrence, Massachusetts native, Anne Tryon Adams, the Annie’s Book Stop logo served over 130 stores from Maine to Florida and as far west as Arizona.  The few remaining Annie’s stores of today are currently owned by independent booksellers and are not connected to each other.

Our storefront on U.S. Route One Wells, Maine is located less than a mile from the pristine beaches of Wells, Moody, and Ogunquit.  Our store is well known for its welcoming atmosphere, comfortable prices, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and wide variety of gently used paperback books in a broad range of subjects for readers of all ages.  We specialize in assisting students with school reading lists and also maintain a “Request File” for books we do not have in stock.  In addition we offer a selection of new books and are happy to special order any title for you subject to availability.

From Classics to Best Sellers,  Romance, Mystery, and Westerns, current Biography, heart pounding Thrillers and Science Fiction, it’s no wonder that Annie’s Book Stop of Wells, Maine has become the favorite browsing place for book lovers of all ages and sizes.

What We Do:

We are a full service bookstore serving our neighbors in southern Maine and our fellow book lovers on the world wide web.  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always ready to help with book searches, special orders, and questions about reading order of books in series.  Can’t remember the title of the book you want to read?  Unlike search engines, our staff operates on brain power and we often come up with the desired title with very little information.  We love a challenge and are just a mouse click away or you can call us at (207)646-3821.  We are happy to check our existing inventory of used and new books or will special order a new copy for you subject to availability and your approval.

Today’s Books at Yesterday’s Prices:

Our Pre-Read Books sell for half of the original cover price.  Pre-Read Books with a cover price less than $1.00 are sold for the original price.  If we do not have a used copy of a requested title in stock we will put your request into our file and notify you by phone or e-mail when that title arrives at our store.  We are usually able to have a new book in stock within the week and will make you aware of any forseeable delays at the time you order. 

We have access to most books in print.  If we do not have a title you are looking for we will be happy to order a new copy for you subject to availability and will notify you when it arrives.   We ship anywhere in the continental United States for a nominal fee. Sales tax is added when applicable.

Annie’s Book Stop will accept your Pre-Read paperback books for credit based on the cover price of the book. Books must be in good condition and we reserve the right to refuse any book because of condition or salability.  Credits can only be used in the store where they are issued and never expire.  Credits can be used to partially pay up to half the cost of any Pre-Read Books purchased. For Example:

          Pre-Read Total                             $10.00

          Amt. Allowed From Credit            $ 5.00

          Total Due In Cash                        $ 5.00

Credit cannot be used to pay the total cost of the purchase.  Unused credit will be carried over for future purchases. Credit may not be used on New Books.
