    Ha, I got lost twice in here. This is probably as huge as the amazon warehouse only much cooler!

    Nice things to look at (has more then just books, like gnomes, Japanese cooking sets, etc), but way over priced!!!

    Larger then you think when you first walk in. Keep venturing back, lose yourself in the shelves and smell that amazing book smell!

    not super great, its more about toys and gifts than books, unlike the Pearl District main brick and mortar

    Coffee Shop's Table near the Children's Books is an ideal combination.

    The 2nd best book store in Portland. The first is the other Powells on Burnside.

    A more laid back browsing experience than the downtown location where you can still easily get lost among the shelves.
