A lot of you know of Powell's Books here in Portland, some of you may not..this post is for those of you who do know it and have never been and for those of you who don't know it and should Definitely go! A few weeks ago Dave needed a book for a class and we thought maybe we should go to Powell's and trade in some books so we could get his book for cheaper. I have lived in Portland for what almost 9 years now and have never been into Powell's. Now I know why...HOLY COW I could spend all day in there!! The book that Dave needed was right by the Children's book section. There are so many awesome books just in the few aisles that I saw. I almost literally had to cover my eyes to keep me from stopping at every aisle to look at something.
Every time my mom comes to town to visit she HAS to go to Powell's and now I know what takes her so long. They have the store broken into different sections like the Rose room and the Orange room and so on. I saw maybe a tenth of what was there...Anyway, the next time you need a book and are in the area , and have all day to waste I recommend Powell's.
