Best North Tampa literary haven

Book Swap of Carrollwood

Book Swap offers mostly used books, but also sells select new titles — mostly bestsellers and classics — and caters to the USF student population with used textbook sales and rentals. The store also focuses on community involvement, hosting author signings and other literary events. On Sept. 20, a local litigator will discuss topics relevant to Banned Book Week, and on Sept. 28, Melissa Carroll — poet, yoga instructor, and editor of the new book Going OM — will share stories about the wonders of yoga. 13144 N.
