Once nice part about visiting the in-laws in Oregon? Going to Mecca, er, Powell‘s. 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

I MAY have blown past my intended number of books bought, thereby blowing up my resolution. BUT, I expect this will be my only trip to Powell‘s this year and I have 12 months to rectify it, so I‘m justified. 😬 Right?

Book haul stack to come in a later post.

Kdgordon88 Completely justified and in your defense it is impossible to leave Powell‘s without more than you planned for. It just can‘t be done. 😂 1mo

Hooked_on_books @Kdgordon88 Yes! This is an excellent point. Thanks for shoring up my justifications. 😆 1mo
Suet624 I‘m so jealous! 1mo
Leftcoastzen I like the way you think! In fairness to Powells they have many titles that might not show up in your local stores! 1mo
ValerieAndBooks Now I want a trip back to Oregon just for Powell‘s— love that place! 1mo

Powell‘s at Cedar Hills Crossing looked so inviting tonight that I just had to stop in. 📚✨

BookNAround I definitely couldn‘t have resisted that look either. 3mo

I made it to the mothership 😍 in Portland visiting colleges with my son but we stopped here first 🙂 completely overwhelming and wonderful in equal measure. I think I might have to sneak back later.....

Ruthiella I‘ve only been there once but agreed it is totally overwhelming! So many books!😀 4mo
Worder Agreed it is amazing. Several visits to it myself have taught me it is not possible for a book lover to get bored here. 4mo

Nute I like how you described it as “the mothership.” I hope that I make it to the mothership one day! 3mo
cathipink @Nute it was incredible - I went back for a second visit when there were fewer customers and I could've stayed there forever. It's definitely the largest and most well-stocked bookstore I've ever been to. I hope you make the trip! It's worth it 🙂🙂🙂 3mo
Nute 💕 Oh, I forgot to say ‘Cool photo!‘ 3mo
cathipink @Nute thank you so much, Kimberley! 🥰 3mo

In the happy place! (Hawthorne branch) #PDX

rather_be_reading The Mecca! They have more than one branch? 5mo
Mogoeg @rather_be_reading - They have three branches (and a shop at the airport). All three are substantial, but the downtown one really is a 'City of Books' - it's enormous! I love it, but the Hawthorne one is my 'local'! 5mo
