Powell's is so big that they offer maps of the store layout. They have a huge selection of new and used books and magazines, plus a coffee shop where you are welcome to sit and read the merchandise. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Prices for the used books are very affordable. I have a hard time walking out the door without buying an armload of books. Powell's also buys used books, so you could come prepared and wind up with a little extra spending money for your trip. To check out their selection before making a trip, you could look at their website, where they offer online purchasing and delivery. Despite this option, a trip to the store should not be skipped.
