Ukazoo Books opened its doors in Towson, MD on June 18th, 2007.
Updated October 2014; Buyback is back. Our book buyback counter is open seven days a week. Monday - Saturday from 10am - 7pm and Sunday from 11am - 5pm.  If you have 100 or fewer books, just bring them in and we will process while you are in the store. If you have more than 100 books we will not get to them while you wait and we will automatically recycle books we are unable to buy.  Always recommended for first timers: bring less than 100 to see how we work and what we pay. Most people will then feel comfortable dropping all 1600 of Uncle Edward's books with us. 
We have over 100,000 titles, in just about every category you can think of, including fiction and non-fiction, ranging from business management to military history to poetry and drama. We have particularly strong biography, religion, romance, and mystery/thriller sections.
Our bookstore is organized by subject matter and alphabetically by author. Our trained staff is happy to help you find any titles you're looking for.
Our used books are in great condition. Each book is examined prior to shelving to ensure it is Clean and Tight. All books are guaranteed to be Clean with little or no underlining, highlighting or coloring, and Tight with no loose pages or torn bindings.
All merchandise (with the exception of art and local handmade crafts) can be returned with receipt for store credit within 10 days of the date of purchase. We reserve the right to limit or decline refunds. Gift cards cannot be returned for cash.
Our used books are competitively priced, and are often significantly less than half the publisher's list price. Our books are even less expensive than those available for $0.01 online, once you take shipping into account. And with our great ongoing Buy 3 Used Books, Get the 4th Free! promotion, you're guaranteed a good deal!
We have trained acquisitions personnel on staff to help you track down any book you are looking for. We have a large inventory of books in our warehouses. In-stock warehouse books are usually available in 1–2 weeks. Books that are not in our warehouse stock can be special ordered for you, and are usually available in 2–3 weeks. You can pick books up in-store or have them shipped directly to you.
Ukazoo Books is open Monday–Thursday from 10am–8pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am - 9pm and Sunday from 11am–6pm. We will be closed on Christmas and Thanksgiving Days.
