Since mid April I‘ve been practicing feeling better through retail therapy. I encourage clients to not use this form of therapy but I‘m awful at taking my own good advice 🤷🏻‍♀️

Pictured are a good size portion of recent book purchases. The lower stack is from an impromptu visit to Powell‘s last Sunday. Books make me feel better. Looking at them, buying and reading them. My favorite form of self care.

Cinfhen Super excited about your purchases!!!! Glad you don‘t practice what you preach!!! Awesome buys ❣️❣️❣️ 3w
Soubhiville Nice! I love Kent Haruf. I think you‘re right, buying books is good therapy. The anticipation of reading them is good for you. 3w
TrishB Got some great reads coming up there 👍🏻 3w

Chrissyreadit Good for you!!! I plant to visit Powell‘s in July. And I think book buying should be exempt from retail therapy. It‘s necessary sometimes. 3w
squirrelbrain What @TrishB said…can I pop round to share?! 😁 3w
Megabooks I practice this form of self care often. A new book feeds my soul. 💕💕💕 (edited) 3w
marleed I‘m so proud of your support for the book industry. I mean if no one buys books…. 3w
Kdgordon88 Thank you all for your support. I knew I could count on you for a 🙌🏼 rather than the 👀 roll I get at home. 😂 @Cinfhen @Soubhiville @TrishB @Chrissyreadit @Megabooks @marleed @squirrelbrain and Helen, I am more than a hop, skip and jump away from you but I‘m always happy to share books! 3w
Kdgordon88 @Chrissyreadit Oregon in July should be lovely, especially if it is after the 4th. Hope you get to the beach and have time to browse to your hearts content at Powell‘s. 3w
squirrelbrain I‘ll hop on a plane and be there in a day or so! 🤣 3w

My Powell's #bookhaul

I'm not sure it was okay for them to be selling an ARC of Drowned Girls, but I was on a budget and couldn't afford the hardcover🤷

Well isn‘t that nice! This lovely little thank you note from Powell‘s was waiting in my mailbox today. I haven‘t placed an order in a while, so I wonder if they‘re trying to encourage me to do so. 😆

Genius! At the time that we are missing our bookshops the most - we can by perfume that smells of books! Yes please Santa! ( learnt a new word today - bibliochor- the comforting smell of books!)

AmyG Ha! 2y
Superwizardamadeus I was able to go into a mall and stood outside the closed Barnes and Noble roll gate and smell into their store. It‘s surprising to think how much you miss that smell, the brain needs it. 2y

One more PSA: Powell‘s Books has taken a stand against amazon (by no longer selling thru amazon marketplace) and is having a 20% off sitewide sale.

“For too long, we have watched the detrimental impact of Amazon‘s business on our communities and the independent bookselling world. The vitality of our neighbors and neighborhoods depends on the ability of local businesses to thrive. We will not participate in undermining that vitality.”

A small gesture I know, but I bought a book online from Powell‘s today. I‘ve yet to be able to visit in person, but I‘d like to keep the dream of being able to do that alive.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Well, I‘d love to be doing that. But my income is now zero, so ... I‘m reading from my own shelves! But I‘m thrilled for the bookstores!! 2y
Hooked_on_books This is great news! We need bookstores once we get to the other side of this, so I‘m glad to see this and hope it continues. 2y

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. 😂 2y

Hooked_on_books @Kdgordon88 Yes! This is an excellent point. Thanks for shoring up my justifications. 😆 2y

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!😀 3y
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. 3y

Nute I like how you described it as “the mothership.” I hope that I make it to the mothership one day! 3y
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 🙂🙂🙂 3y

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'! 3y
