Good but disorganized
Sep 2021 • Solo
Worth the visit, but hard to go through the books. Books are stacked one upon the other instead of left to right, so you have to pull a book out and put it back on top of the pile. Also, you have to move a stack of books to get to the books that are are stacked behind them.
I enjoyed their selection, but was hindered by the somewhat disorganized stacking of books.
Bottom line - they need 30% more shelf space than they have. But it’s still a good place to browse.

Best used book store ever
Sep 2019
We have been going to this book store for years......the owner has every type of book imaginable and can tell you where to find it in seconds. You can wander the aisles to find a new author or go right to the genre you are interested in. There is something for everyone here.....kids and young adults as well. You can often find the kids summer reading books here as well as new books for their beach reading. Is closed now for the winter, but look forward to seeing them next spring!

Best kept secret in Wildwood
Sep 2019
Looking for a good read? Then this is the place to go to get your beach read! The proprietor knows his inventory. Just mention an author or a description of a book you read and you will have what you seek in no time. And the price is right! I keep a list of books reviewed in the Inquirer and get them here! Greatest selection on the East Coast!

Always the first stop on vacation
Jul 2019 • Family
This place is always the first stop before we check in on vacation. There’s so many books covering whatever topic you might be looking for, prices are great, and they have good deals too (but 10 books take 20% off the total). The man who runs the store is ridiculously knowledgeable and will qhelp you find whatever you’re looking for. Could spend hours in here going over all of the books.

Great book store full of many great reads at great prices. Summer is the best time to catch up on our reading and this is our first stop. We have been coming here every summer for over 10 years

a readers' paradisen-- a real gem!
May 2018 • Friends
We've been making a point of coming to this gem at least once every year when we come to the shore. So many books of every description, great prices, well organized and such knowledgeable people all define this wonderful store (see website). It is a great place for all genres but if you have children, it can be a special gold mine. I was able to get many Nancy Drew books for a real bargin. Good 'sales' too. FYI. Books of local interest that are unavailable anywhere else are here. If you are looking for some special things, be sure to email the owners (see website), even in the winter when they are not open, so that they can seek out what you'd like when they are gathering up more books. Suggestion: go there on day 1 of your vacation to stock up on great reads.

So many books in a small store
Jul 2017 • Family
My family and I have been going to this store for years and we love it! There is so much for everyone. They have current as well as older books and the selection is fantastic. You save so much money on very gently used books and there is always a deal going on for 10% off and a free kids book when you buy 3. There is always new stuff in stock so we visit often throughout the summer. Definitely worth the short walk off the boardwalk :-)

Saw an advertisement for this store and then happened on it while out and about in Wildwood. Sooo glad we stopped; I could have perused their huge collection for hours. Friendly, engaging and helpful staff.
