#16 shopped at Powell's City of Books

I've been wanting to visit this bookstore for several years now: Powell's City of Books in downtown Portland. They bill themselves as "the largest used and new bookstore in the world", combining used and new books on same shelves. 68,000 sq feet. Clean. Lots of helpful people. Impressive. Only thing lacking was no resident dog or cat, which all bookstores should have...

I had absolutely no problem spending 3 hours browsing shelves, selecting books, and having fun. AND... if you buy over $50 worth of books they will ship them home free! That plus no sales tax made it similar to with the positive plus of being able to touch and browse the book. Very nice.

I really liked this picture of coffee drinking animals (click to enlarge) hanging in the World Cup Coffee & Tea cafe located inside Powell's.
