Subject: Powells Books, Portland
Hi, I'm new to the list (just a few days) and just lurking for right now, but couldn't resist when I saw the post re Powells.

We went to Portland OR a couple years ago and I second the recommendation of Powell's Book Store. The main store is a city block and you could get lost in there. But, if you like books, I can't think of a much better place to get lost. Unless it has changed since we were there, they have an inventory of approximately a million books.
