We think we have a beautiful bookshop and we're pleased that so many people agree.

Here are some of the lovely comments we've received.


"I wanted to thank you all so much for all your hard work in making the launch at Woodbridge Library yesterday such a success!! Everything was so beautifully organised, and I couldn't think of a better home for the launch of my first novel - especially since I have such fond memories of Browsers as a child (my grandma used to take us ther and allow us to choose one book to was always impossible to decide!). It was a great experience and one I hope to repeat again soon - who knows, perhaps with Book 2 of the Golden Apple Trilogy!!"

Emily Hauser, author of 'For the Most Beautiful' launched with Browsers in January 2016

"Thanks so much for organising last night - it was great fun - brilliant format, lovely crowd and ringing tills at the end. Do let me know if you want to do it again at any point - would love to come along."

Mark Mason, author of 'Mail Obsession' launched with Browsers in October 2015

"Thank you so much for having me and for organising such a lovely event in your gorgeous bookshop. The attention to detail with the music was great and the questions from both you and the audience were wonderful.

"Thank you also for the lovely goody bag for the train, and the card and surprise within it. It is very much appreciated!

"I hope you enjoyed the evening as much as I did, and that you sell lots of copies of Devastation Road and, of course, The Dynamite Room. Hopefully see you again soon. With best wishes and many thanks!"

"With the demise of so many good independent book sellers, thank heavens for Browsers Bookshop in Woodbridge — the loveliest, friendliest, happiest place I know to spend a few hours perusing staff recommendations. I challenge anyone to leave empty-handed."

Meg Rosoff, award-winning author and a regular customer

"I look for bookshops that remind me of what it's like to discover the world of books and how one can lead unexpectedly to another. I also like to have a clear sense of a bookseller's discernment and ambition, of their having made a selection and one that will be different from any other. However limited, their range should be so nuanced that you will find the right thing, even if it's not what you were looking for.

"In a place like Browsers, I can find books I've forgotten or never got round to, as well as plenty I've never heard of alongside titles that are all over the literary news. The shop looks quite small, and it probably is, only it's so cleverly arranged that you can spend a satisfyingly long time drifting from shelf to table, pondering the captions and displays, and just following your nose. The layout encourages a gently circular wandering; it's like pottering round a garden. Your attention is caught by a title or cover that pleases you. You move on but there it is again, so you take a closer look."
