The Stories We Could Tell

Powell’s City of Books

Holy heaven in a box! This place is amazing! One could easily spend hours upon hours among all of the books here (not to mention drop a few bills too). Powell’s City of Books is the largest independent bookstore in the world. The store we visited holds more than 1.5 million new and used books. You could literally get lost here. To help you find your way the store has its own map and rooms are color-coded based on type of book. This place puts the best library you have ever visited to shame. James and I got out with only two books each, but that was a struggle. Next time we go there we are bringing our suitcase to haul out our winnings!

  1. Powell’s vs. The Strand. I’m not sure that the Powell’s claim to be the largest hold’s up… but The Strand does not have a photo backdrop, so extra points go to Powell’s for that stroke of genius!
