    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.

    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 Leggi tutto

    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.

    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.

    Powell's workers probably have more attitude than any Portlander. Which is nice because everyone in Portland is so damned nice. Leggi tutto

    Two years later, it’s still as overwhelming in the best possible way as before. Rooms upon rooms, floors upon floors of books—new, used, obscure, bestsellers, rare, paperback, hardback, it’s all here!

    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.

    My favorite place in Portland. You can get lost and definitely lose track of time. If you are looking for gifts to take home check this place out.

    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.

    The main store covers an entire city block, and is three stories tall – and the whole thing is packed to the rafters with every book you could ever hope to read – more than a million books. Leggi tutto

    So many books and so many people which is uplifting to see in this digital age. Old and new books together sit well and you'll be sure to find something you want. Good coffee too.

    I could get lost in this bookstore all day. You can bring up to 5 books into the coffee shop to peruse before buying. Sat and enjoyed my books for a while over a delicious cappuccino

    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.

    Words cannot describe this bookstore, it doesn’t matter what you’re into, there is something on every conceivable topic inside. Plan on spending at least an hour or two!

    The mother of all book stores, Powells has everything. And often times it has it used, saving you money. Nice places to sit and read, drink coffee, and enjoy.

    Best bookstore I've ever been to in the US. Hands down. Incredibly well-stocked and laid out. Be careful: once you enter you will lose all track of time.

    There's a reason this is the #1 independent book store in America! 1 step in the door and you are filled with joy! Used and new books are on the shelves next to each other because all books are equal!

    They call it city of books for good reason. It's easy to get lost amongst the shelves full of adventure, cooking, travel, history... You name it. It's truly a metropolis.

    Give Portland's first (and currently only) pedestrian scramble a try at the NW entrance (the one on 11th).

    Find business books on the ground fl. Orange Room, Aisles 531-534. We’re impressed with the selection of business writing, green business, and non-profit books. So many books on grant-writing!

    Did you know? The Latin inscription on the “Pillar of Books” at the NW 11th and Couch St entrance is translated as “Buy the book, read the book, enjoy the book, sell the book.”

    The largest bookstore in the NW, and probably America, it's an entire city block and 5 stories high. They give you a map to navigate in the beginning.

    Books on hold is insanely quick for in-stock books. Usually same-day service and you can call the store to request books for hold. Head on up to the top floor when you arrive.

    Quite possibly the best bookstore in the country. The selection is immense, and the inclusion of used titles in the same space as new is fantastic.

    If I get to heaven and it isn't a free version of Powell's, I'll be deeply disappointed. There are maps at the info desks; they're great for finding where all the goodness is stored.

    Home to not one, but three Manga sections. You'll find them by the cafe, by the elevator that doesn't serve all floors, and by the stairs to the upper level registers.
