The Old Tampa Book Company was opened in 1995 by David Brown and his wife Ellen in Tampa's downtown business district. Sixteen years later it has grown from 2,000 to more than 40,000 books. Articles in local newspapers describe the store as: Couple's Store is one for the books. David Brown can't help himself. He is a book addict. On vacation and business trips, he pores over piles of books in estate, library, and university sales and anywhere else he can find to buy secondhand books. That explains the look of the Old Tampa Book Company. Books fill the shelves and are stacked on top of them, cover tabletops and line high walls. Overflow volumes crowd the $1 sidewalk sale carts."
