My daughter wanted to buy the hard bound 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' so we stopped in (I consider myself to be frugal but have a weakness when my kids ask for books). In addition to books, this store has many, varied novelties, lotions, accessories and decorations. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Nice place to duck into to look at books as well as lots of other interesting items you can't find elsewhere in Rehoboth

Once again, my family and I had the pleasure of shopping at Browseabout! We make it a point to stop in every summer we visit Rehoboth. Not only do they have a large selection of books, they have beautiful gifts and home decor. Be sure to pick up a few of the mini wooden replicas of your favorite places in... More

I love coming in first thing and browsing some summer reads and then picking them up to read during my beach trip. I believe in supporting local and always do this when visiting any town...so make sure you stop by, look around and help out some great local establishments.

I love bookstores. I make a point to try and come into this one whenever I'm at the beach. Not only does this store have a variety of books for all ages and interest, but they have a lot of fancy soaps and lotions, toys, games and puzzles, little gifts, a little cafe counter where you can order coffee or...

The reading room was a good use of space, but only stumbled upon it by mistake! Great sale of cookbooks! The store is primarily made up of Knicks knacks and clothing, soaps, etc. The store is well staffed and helpful - we spent quite a bit of time roaming and reading there. Fun store!

This store is a really good book store, but it is also a great place for gifts and special toys. They have a coffee bar that is delicious as well. You can find your favorite newspapers here. They have authors come and talk and sign books almost year round!

I went in expecting a full on book store. Really, half of the square footage is a gift shop of t shirts and beach themed housewares. The remaining half is split between books and toys. I was looking for postcards and had to ask twice for directions to the postcard rack because they are behind a pole in the center... More
