Speechless Sunday: Powell's City of Books

I've become fairly good at the concept of Speechless Sunday and not posted much, if any, commentary along with my pictures, but I've got to gush about this one, just smidge. I went here today. And it never fails to leave me speechless.

If you have never been to Portland, Oregon, this can be the first thing on your "Why to Visit Portland" list: Powell's City of Books. It is one of the biggest bookstores in the world, independently owned and operated in the Pearl District. It's incredible - more than a million new, used and rare books fill an entire city block, 3 stories high. I get lost. And love every minute of it.

  1. Totally entranced, unaware of time, weather or people around me. They always have to come find me after I enter Powell's Bookstore.
