Books, cards, local crafts... this is a great place to lose yourself for a couple of hours. I especially like the huge number of staff recommendations scattered through the store. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, too.

We happened in while visiting friends, and honestly, I could have spent the entire day there! Books, coffee, toys, board games! I love it. Talk about Browse About - the lay out, and the creative way the staff sets up their recommendations!

Browseabout Books is a great bookstore and gifts shop. A Rehoboth tradition you won't want to miss as you are wandering down Rehoboth Ave.
