Yesterday I had the immense pleasure of going to Portland Oregon's Powell's Books for the first time. I've heard so much about it over the years but I'd yet to go for myself. A friend and I decided to rectify the situation so we specifically planned a drive down to Portland to go there. I knew it was going to be big but I don't think I could really imagine quite what that meant. It's a whole city block, 5 stories (I believe) with 8 color coded rooms (which helps a lot with the navigation) and just might be the biggest independent new and used bookstore in the world. In other words, it's pretty much paradise.



I bought 8 of books while I was there! )

My only gripe is that they don't have a bookstore like this in Seattle.

I can't wait to go again!
