    »Old Tampa Book Company

    If you're a book fan, there's hardly any event more exciting than finding an out-of-print treasure you've always wanted. And maybe that "treasure" might indeed some day be a treasure, given the escalation of antique book prices. If you're attending a convention here, you can sneak away for a quick visit; it's just a few blocks away. Once here, however, be prepared to scrap the rest of that meeting to lose yourself in 10,000 volumes of nearly new and older books, not to mention the antiquarian and out-of-print books.
