About Us

Once upon a time there was a little girl, a stack of books, and a very comfy chair...

Our owner, Sally Bradshaw, always dreamed of working in a bookstore. That dream came true when Midtown Reader opened in November of 2016 as Tallahassee's neighborhood independent bookstore. Tallahassee is the capital city of Florida, home to two major universities, and most importantly: a diverse community of readers. Our booksellers and baristas are here to help put the right books into your hands. Whether you're...

  • A lifelong Floridian
  • A mystery lover
  • A creative writing student
  • A history buff

We have a selection of new and noteworthy books just for you. When you walk through our doors, we welcome you into a cozy space to learn and grow alongside readers from all walks of life. Get plugged into our community through our full calendar of author events, book clubs, storytimes, and more! Bring a friend to #readthinkshare with us among the bookshelves and #eatdrinkshare with us in the Piebrary
