    This place is OLD. And Big. And full of new releases, rare editions, old copies, and used books. I loved the Florida section and the children's section.  more »

    After going to the small history museum, I noticed a lot of the buildings in the area were original. Then we stopped in St Pete Brewing company and found a book with the history of St. Pete. The Bar t...  more »

    Love! Love! Love this place! Yes, I'm a book worm and a nerd. Haslam's has the best assortment of used books I've seen anywhere. Plus, they carry a good variety of new. As a collector of leather bound classics, I find many of my treasures here. That's my favorite spot in the store. My second favorite is the children's section. I've found so many of the books I cherished as a child. I enjoy buying them for my nieces and nephews. I hope they too will love reading. While in the store, see if you can find the resident cat, teacup. There are two new rescue kitties that do not show themselves yet. May this treasure last another 80 years.

    Any bibliophile must visit this amazing store. I have found books here that I simply can't find anywhere else. They have a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere, ad so many shelves of books, you could easily get lost (but in the best way)! Whenever I have the chance, I come down to visit. Definitely worth the drive if you love books!

    Great selection! I'm a sci-fi/fantasy gal, and I especially appreciate the equal selection of new and used. Almost as good: kitties! It's not a proper trip to Haslam's without petting one of the store cats that roam around. They have free range of the store so you're can find one anywhere from hanging out on the counter to on the top of a high shelf

    Huge store with a large selection. It has such a unique feel to it. They also have cats in the store which I love! Great atmosphere and it is such a comfortable place to sink into a good book. They have both new and used books.

    They have a large selection, especially for a local business. The store may seem sprawling at first, but it's well organized. There are several cats that roam around the store, which is always fun to see. The books are sometimes a little pricey, but they are generally fairly reasonable.
