You couldn’t ask for a better name than Browesabout Books. Here, one can browse about without being stalked by sales types. Besides its large book selection, the independently owned shop carries stationery, gifts and a surprising number of toys. Sip excellent espresso in its café.

From 2009:

For those with a healthy appetite for reading, like the Meoli clan, it doesn’t get much better than Browseabout Books, where community-minded owners Steve and Barbara Crane strive to put the right volume in the right hands. “We love to support our locals,” Mike Meoli says. “The staff is very hands-on and knowledgeable.” Bestsellers and award-winners fill the shelves, and local authors frequently appear for signings. Stationery, gifts and toys can be found here, too. Browseabout is famous for its regular—and often spontaneous—events, sidewalk sales and food tie-ins. Hello, Scrapple Day.
