Great book store - you can spend a day browsing it's many nooks and crannies. A must for book lovers who want to support independent libraries, and for those who still appreciate the crisp feel of a book made of paper!Popular with
- 2Powell's City of Books, 3747 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 9721413 reviews
I challenge you to spend less than an hour in this store. Can't be done. And trust me, I've been there for much longer than that. My favorite thing about Powell's is their used book collection, and the fact that they're not separated into a different section.Popular with

You want to experience a part of Portland which shows that an obscure subculture can become a successful business that sustains itself through the years? More than "putting a bird on it", the owner Chloe has made a stamp (her previous business in NW) on the city by taking zines from the past to the future. Just a block away ...

During my last visit to Portland, my son really wanted to go to Cameron's Books. Apparently a relative of one of his former teachers helped start this book store back in 1938. And of course he told the clerk all about it almost immediately after we arrived. Cameron's is the Ying to Powell's Yang and is the real deal. There ...Popular with

I like this neighbourhood bookstore and Mollie Bloom the cat. My son and I came last Sunday to browse a bit and I made it a point to come back later to look around some more. And if a stand-alone experience isn't your thing, this is a great place to hang out while waiting for your Fat City Cafe number ...

At the northern end of Northwest Portland's trendy 23rd Street, New Renaissance is ground zero for all things new age in Portland. This is the spot to go if you're looking for books on shamanism, tarot cards, incense, crystals, or Celtic music CDs, and it's a fun place to browse even if you don't plan on buying. They also have ...Popular with

Ampersand is a gallery, specialty bookstore, and a retail archive, all in one compact and beautifully displayed retail space. It's a place of cultural preservation, starting with the plastic sleeves on many of the selections. The books are both old and new, as is the photography (vintage or not and many on the wall as works of art). I like ...

It's hard to visit Portland without walking past or visiting a Powell's Books. And I often find myself visiting this Concourse C Powell's on both ends of my PDX flights. The bookstore is surprisingly spacious and features a nice selection of new and used books, journals, travel essentials, gifts, and of course a good selection of Portland's own Queen Bee ...

My first impression of Hawthorne Avenue was that with notable exceptions, a better name this section of town would be the Tschotchke Trail. There's Greg's, Sorel's, Presents of Mind, and other unique "stuff" places that I'm sure I somehow missed. I had the most fun at Dollar (Loonie?) Scholar. It's an interesting combination of a variety store, a rummage sale, ...

Every time I visit Portland, I like to hop in the car or public transit and explore some part of a neighbourhood that I've never or rarely been. I did that a few Sundays ago and ended up in the NE Alberta area in general and at Monograph Bookwerks in particular. Monograph is small, but is nicely curated with books ...

Gayle and I picked up David from his Religious Education class and then went to his Portland house to see his room and computer set up. Soon after, we hopped in the car and started to head out of town for a shortish afternoon driving trip up the Columbia River. However, all the Kid really wanted to do was stay ...Popular with

A weird neighborhood staple of SE Portland, Armchair Family Bookstore sells second-hand paperbacks and National Geographic magazines. The old musty smell and stacks of Harlequin romance novels, along with the sketchy door entrance makes one think this business has been opened for way too long.Popular with

I love visiting Campus Bookstores where ever they may be. Of course, I would prefer my own alma maters (University of Iowa, Texas A&M, and UC Berkeley), but wandering the stacks, branded gear, stationary, and other sundries brings back lots of pleasant educational memories. My Son and I wandered in last Friday, which netted him some art supplies and me ...Popular with

I really like this Bookstore, especially the literary stairs up the second floor. There are stacks and stacks of well organized used book to browse, and at popular prices. It's also very Kid friendly and perhaps the only thing missing is a bookstore cat.Popular with
