Powell's was probably my favorite place in Portland. It is a bookstore that is a full city block square and 3 stories tall. If there's a heaven it may very well be Powell's.
I spent an afternoon there, wandering through the stacks, wishing that I wasn't traveling with only carry-ons and that I could buy bunches of books. Instead I took pictures of book covers to remind me what to buy later. There is also a cafe in the shop where I got tea and a ham and cheese croissant which was delicious. I hung out for a little while and edited photos before heading back to the rows of books.
This place is a real treasure.
