Sara is a native Portlander and Jaime is a naturalized citizen of the Rose City. We both agree that one of the best things about the city is Powell’s. It truly is a City of Books. Their main location takes up an entire city block with multiple rooms that are easy to get lost in. The decor is nothing to write home about, but since the eyes are so focused on the massive volume of books; this is one place we don’t care.
Also, Powells has great author readings and events. Their Harry Potter party was pretty cool.
I’m trying to sort through my books and I am having a hard time getting rid of any I bought at Powell’s, especially if they still have the price tag or a bookmark inside.
Plus I love their Nalgene bottles for readers.
