Powell's City of Books is a book lover's paradise, the largest used and new bookstore in the world.
Free wifi. Best selection of books. I get lost in here for hours. In a good way.
Lots of books, bring money
This place was amazing. I don't think I've ever seen this many books in any place other than a library!
Whatever you could possibly want ....new and used. best bookstore ... great people work here. helpful but not annoying.. coffee shop is great.take books in and read. don't necessarily have to buy them
Rare book collection is so peaceful.
Awesomeness. One of the best places to get lost in for a book lover!
One of the most incredible book shops in the world.
Oh I never wanted to leave! I think when you walk in they should give you a little wagon to roll around like in Matilda. :-)
Even if you don't need a book, don't miss this place when you are in Pearl district. I spent 90 fascinating minute just browsing and walked out with 2 great books
Take some time and look around
Bldg 2 has technical books
Check out the *buy it for the cover* spinner in the sci fi/fantasy area.
If you love the smell of books and coffee (but mostly books) than this is heaven to people like you.
Волшебное место! Букинистика на любой вкус. И пахнет как в советском книжном магазине :)
Grab yourself a book, new or old, find a nice spot then plop yourself down for a good read. You could spend all day in here.
The rare book room at the top is amazing if you're a true book lover
Yes its touristy. Yes it's still amazing and wonderful.
Get a map. It's not too hard to get lost.
Huge book store that's very casual and organized. Come stay a while.
I can't believe how huge this place is. It seems to always be busy too, at least on the weekend.
The Mecca of books. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to browse.
Amazing book store! You can easily find a gift for everyone on you x-mas list here.
A purchase at the coffee place does not validate your parking.
Majestic, there no book you cannot find here. The staff is very knowledgeable about what they've got.
Claims to be the largest independent new and used bookstore in the world. ONLY for book lovers!
Anything you look for, you will probably find!!!!!
Awesome huge book store. Hard to find these now. You can get lost in here with all the selection. If you can't find it here, it might not exist.
If you like books, you will like this place. There are no hidden treasures but there are books here you can't find anywhere else.
I could probably have wandered around powell's for our entire portland trip.
Is it just me or is it harder than it used to be to find the signs listing all the subject areas by room?
amazing bookstore. like the shop around the corner. but bigger.
One word: awesome
Bibliophiles look no further. This place has everything you need. The friendly staff are available to answer all your book/ comic/ arts queries.
Check out the Physics textbook selection. If that's what you might be into...
The locked up room with the expensive, rare first editions is mostly what makes this an attraction
So many fun books!
Seriously, such a huge bookstore and I love that it's locally owned.
Expansive book metropolis! The gifts and stationery are as good as the books. Nice coffee shop too.
You can get lost in this bookstore!
An excellent place to hide away on a rainy afternoon. Or a sunny one.
Heaven on earth. Grab a tea and get lost in the aisles.
So many wonderful aisles.
Found OG Frank Miller's Ronin;) been looking for a hot minute
Massive selection of books.
Awesomely ginormous bookstore you could get lost in for hours.
There are books
Check out the vintage typewriters in the Pearl Room.
When you find a book you like, be sure to check a few copies to find the best deal. Used and new mixed in, usually one will be a could dollars cheaper. Use that savings to buy even more books!!
The fucking books
