The Largest Independent Used Bookstore In Washington Has More Than 500,000 Books

The Tacoma Book Center has a simple and rather unassuming exterior. Inside, the 16,000 square feet of space is devoted to storing books — half a million of them, in fact. If you’ve been looking for your next good read, look no further.
