My son and I visit this bookstore on our trips to Wildwood. This year, I wanted some extra books in case we were stuck indoors due to TS Hermine. Great selection!

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!

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.

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

I was amazed at all the books they had. It's a used book store but they had a new book my daughter was looking for. We made two trips during our vacation week. Reasonable pricing with plenty of options.

Only 2 blocks from the boardwalk, near the corner of Oak & Pacific, Hooked on Books is packed floor to ceiling with books. Used are half price or less. There is a small section of new books at 20% off. Mostly paperbacks but also some hardcovers. Children's books range from picture books to YA. Look in coupon books such as "boardwalk bucks" for 10% off your purchase.

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!

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.
