Anyway, one thing on our to do list was visit Powell's City of Books! Sadly, I had no idea this bookstore existed last time we were in the area (15 years ago.) But this time, I knew and I went!
They said I'd be overwhelmed and boy, were they ever right! Wow. I can't even describe it, but I'll try. It's huge. There's a ton of books. Everything is organized by room, with different topics and sorts of books in all the different rooms, color coded, three or four levels (I don't even know, I didn't get that far!) Used books and new books all mixed up together.
And tons and tons of people! It was crazy crowded.
Anyway, we took pictures:
|Here's the corner of the building as we approached.|
|The main sign.|
|The list of where to find things.|
|Looking down over into the kids/YA room... of which this is just a tiny tiny part!|
|Just one shelf of Sense and Sensibility. The Jane Austen section was huge.|
|In line, I'm pondering the t shirt options.|
|And this is the t shirt I ended up with. :)|
Have you been to this book store? How would you describe your experience?
