Comic 856 – “Powell’s Books”
Errol: During our visit to Portland, we checked out Powell’s Books. It was pretty amazing. I do love just hanging out in bookstores. I probably should post pictures.
Debs: A picture! I found a picture! Okay, so this is just inside one of the entrances. Yes, there are many entrances because Powell’s is the size of a city block. I’m holding the map of it! Wow. These comics make me miss Portland.
a block wide full of books???? I must move there!! can Debs be my tour guide?
should we be worried when Comic Errol’s the straight person to Comic Deb’s comedy? we like it lol
Not just a block. A four-story building on a whole city block. And several satellite stores. We love our Powells. 🙂
Wow, bikes AND books? I really need to move to Portland.
Powell’s Books was, we OryConners hoped, to be the coup de grace in a campaign to convince Debs and Errol to move here.
It didn’t work.
did you try voodoo doughnuts?
Kinda? We were so busy we saw the truck but were always on our way to something else and couldn’t get any. 😀
I think Debs had one…
I HAD ONE IT WAS AWESOME!
But there is now this place near where I live! http://www.vondoughnuts.com/
I dream of such a bookstore. Although, all that CHOICE! How could I buy anything with all of that CHOICE?!
Choice nothing! Sit in the store and read until they kick you out then go into hock borrowing from EVERYONE to buy them all…. There are reasons I am in debt. Book stores are high on that list.
“It’s full of stars!”
The Fault in our Stars?
Reference to 2001! ^_^
I want to move to that bookstore, by the way.
You totally need to come to Portland again! Battlepoet and I would gleefully be your tour guides 😀
And next time, we’ll make sure we know where we’re going…..
