    Immense downtown bookstore that puts New York City's Strand to shame. Follow the signs or end up lost for hours. Lovely mix of new and used; mass-market and small press. Great coffee shop too.

    Great place. Get lost, I mean it. If you love books there isn't a better place on earth. Wall to wall, floor to floor, section to subsection. Get lost inside, you'll be happy you did.

    If you’re into rare books, the Powell’s collection is one of the best in the country – stop in and check out a first edition of The Hobbit, signed Hemingway novels, and a wealth of other goodies Leia mais

    An amazing, near-endless labyrinth of books, classic book merch, Portland souvenirs, books. Put aside at least 2 hours for this place, more if you're in the mood to drag a book into the cafe there.

    Oddly organized for the outdoor enthusiast-fishing, camping and parks are all in different areas of the store. Rail trails are with the railroad books. 🙄📚📚Women's T-shirts run small-go up a size.

    The world's largest independent book store in the world. You could get lost in here for days if you love books. Even if you don't like books, it's worth seeing. It's quite impressive.

    A bibliophile’s mecca, this 68,000-square-foot bookstore is filled with new and used titles and hosts frequent author readings. In the rare-book room, you’ll find two 1814 volumes by Lewis and Clark.

    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 Powell family of Portland is in a 150 year family feud with the Strand's in New York. 112 years ago they decided to solve their family issues by competing in a "creakiest wooden floors" contest.

    If you plan to sell books, either enter at the Orange Room, or snag an escort when you enter via the Green Room. Staff might get a little cranky otherwise.
