Powells Books

This is the largest book store in the universe, or some such superiority. The number of titles on the shelves is massive, they seem to strive for at least one copy of every book published. And they get closer to that than any other book store I’ve seen.

I did well there, a shopping bag of titles that I’ve been searching out for years in some cases. And I picked up several on-sale items, as well as some new to me authors.

The drawback is that the store is downtown and parking is limited. Well, the real drawback is that getting there involves Portland traffic. Portland and Seattle are in a race to see who reaches San Francisco levels of absurdity when it comes to car transportation. By far, the best bet is the light rail which stops just outside the front door.

But they have other stores in the city, and I’ll be checking out one tomorrow.
