"Powell's is a must!" Books Tip by steedappeal

Books, Portland: 15 reviews and 14 photos

Let's state the obvious- any bookstore that requires a map to navigate its selection is utterly awesome. A great mix of new and gently used . Frequent in-store events and a bustling cafe, too.

Budget at least 2-3 hours a decent walk-through.

What to buy: Books, of course.

****Make sure to pick up the Powells Downtown Portland map that they give out for free.****

They sometimes give a nice Powells book bag for free with a min. purchase.

What to pay: $5 on up...
