Masons Books is located in Downtown Ocean City on the Corner of Baltimore and Caroline St. We are 118 steps off the Boardwalk, just walk down from Fun City Arcade and you'll find us on the corner. We have thousands of used books in many genres of fiction and non-fiction; thousands of children's books; hundred of styles of tin signs in our tin sign gallery. We also have new books and try to keep the new releases and best sellers in stock so you can pick up that anticipated new title while you are at the beach! If we don't have it, we'll try to get it for you in a couple of days.

It's great but stop by soon

We've gone there for several years but the owners plan to retire very soon. So if you can, visit in the next month or so. We will miss them so much.

I am a book lover so I had to stop into this shop. It was such an interesting shop and I am glad we stopped by. There are a whole variety of books in different genres, age ranges, Etc. There were even books for teachers (although they were quite old and outdated in their content) it was still interesting to... More

We had a wonderful time browsing thru the huge stacks of books and I found some to purchase. It was interesting trying to walk thru the shop since there were boxes of books on the floor, stacked up in the aisles and on shelves. I loved it.

This is a great place to wander and pick up any type of book. It's very relaxing to browse, and it is very well organized. The owners usually have some good suggestions/comments if there is some particular book that is wanted. The pricing system is 50% of what is marked on the cover which is a pretty simple system, but... More

What a great find! I decided to check this shop out due to the positive reviews and my love of books! Every inch of the place was covered with books or other unique items. The people working there were so friendly and I enjoyed spending time there.

We recently visited this store while in OC. My daughter begged me to go to this store. We finally found it, downtown near the boardwalk. It is a smaller store, but latterly stacked full of books. There are some new books, but a even larger assortment of used books and many classics as well. It will take you a while... More

Don't worry if the weather isn't beach perfect. You can spend a rainy day browsing through the aisles and shelves and piles of books for hours.

This bookstore is one of the most unique bookstores I've ever visited. They have so many books, they don't have enough shelves for them. The aisles are cluttered with boxes of books that haven't been shelved because there simply isn't any room. In addition to used and new books, they also carry antiques, used board games, tin signs, and other... More
