For over 18 years, the Old Tampa Book Company has provided a haven for book lovers in downtown Tampa. Stocking over 40,000 rare, used, and out-of-print books, it is always possible to find that special treat for your reading pleasure.
The OTBC is an excellent spot to spend part of an afternoon. Located in a "vintage" building on a block that has resisted modern redevelopment, there are a number of small restaurants, such as the Bamboozle Cafe, where you can enjoy a snack or lunch while reading your latest purchase.
Be sure to check out the Florida section for a wide and interesting variety of fiction and non-fiction dedicated to the sunshine state.
