I had a couple of problems with the store going back on their word (see my former review), but I got a call from the store manager and she was willing to help me out with at least one of the problems. I was glad she called....it restored my faith in this business.

Every time we visit Rehoboth, we have to stop in here at least once. I head on back to the used books - bargains all. Their book selection coupled with gifts and toys make this a great place for nearly everyone. PLUS. The staff are all awesome.

Really nice bookstore on the main avenue of our tourist area! Beach items they sell are pricy but Beautiful. Some are very unique and worth price tag. Service is amazing, every time I have been in there they go above your expectations to help find what you are looking for. Browse the whole store, great to do on a rainy... More

I love going to Browseabout. It is hands down my favorite store in town. There is so much to see. They have something for everyone. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. This was an easy choice for most of my Christmas shopping.

A great selection of books but so much more. There are wonderful gift items here, some related to literature for your favorite book worm, but thoughtful gifts for kids and adults that are unique. Love both parts of this bookstore and find that the employees are helpful and many of them are book lovers.

The store is lovely, but I didn't have a great experience. I bought Elf on a Shelf, which came up at 25% off the price at the register. The salesperson said it must be the wrong price and asked another salesperson, she agreed that the price must be wrong and probably an old sale price. They never asked a manager... More

My husband and I shopped here several times over the week were at Rehoboth Beach. Very nice selection of gifts and books. My only complaint was an older cashier felt it necessary to decide I didn't need two promotional buttons for purchasing the book "Tales of the Peculiar and silently held one back. I thought that a bit petty as... More

We've been coming to Rehoboth/Dewey Beach for 3 years now and every year I come into this bookstore at least twice a week. I should just get a membership. They have more than books and in the morning they serve coffee. They have a good selection of cards, home decor, clothing and other accessories as well. A lot of things... More

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.
