Powell's City of Books is a book lover's paradise, the largest used and new bookstore in the world. Located in downtown Portland, Oregon, and occupying an entire city block, the City stocks more than a million new and used books. Nine color coded rooms house over 3,500 different sections, offering something for every interest, including an incredible selection of out-of-print and hard-to-find titles.

Each month, the Basil Hallward Gallery (located upstairs in the Pearl Room) hosts a new art exhibit, as well as dozens of author events featuring acclaimed writers, artists, and thinkers such as Roddy Doyle, Joyce Carol Oates, Michael Chabon, Annie Leibovitz, and President Jimmy Carter.

The City's Rare Book Room gathers autographed first editions and other collectible volumes for readers in search of a one-of-a-kind treasure.

And the City's newest addition (October 2010) is Powell's Books Bldg. 2, a relocation of Powell's Technical Books, brings mathematics, sciences, computing, engineering, construction, and transportation sections closer to visitors at the flagship store. Bldg. 2 is located across the street from the City of Books on the corner of NW 10th and Couch.

Every day at our buyers' counter in the Orange Room we purchase thousands of used books from the public. Powell's purchases special collections, libraries, and bookstore inventories as well.

As Irene Adler is THE woman, so Powell's is THE bookstore.
Décembre 2014 par the_red_shoes
This place really is the best bookstore in the world. I visited Seattle and rented a car and drove to Portland for a day just so I could go to Powell's. Great experience.

Recently returned from an inspiring family trip to Portland. Great city, great bookstore.

This is simply the best bookstore in the world.

I visited Portland once and fell in love with Powells; the ultimate second hand book buyers fantasy.

It's a bit of a trek from the UK but I would love to go back. More bookshops should be this big and this great.

I am lucky enough to live in Portland, it only takes 10 minutes to get to this store. It's still not close enough. One of my great fantasies is Powells adding a few stories of condos above the Burnside store. Or you know, annexing another city block and putting the condos there. Of course, this fantasy includes a job at Powells. They could just keep my paycheck, for the rent and all the books I'd be getting. I could probably go on... and on and on and on...

I don't think you can really get it until you've been in a bookstore with more than a million books. It messes with your head.

The Mecca of books. Someday I will go to Portland and see the sights, but all my life I've only gone to do a specific event and then to go spend a day at Powells.
