Portland: Powell’s Bookstore

Powell’s bookstore is basically heaven on earth for book lovers. With a proper that spans nearly a whole city block, multiple floors packed to the brim with new, used, and rare books, and the perfect amount of Portland-esq vibes, it’s definitely a wonderful place to visit when coming to Portland.

Alsoooo, I forgot to take a picture of the outside, or the neon “Powell’s City of Books” sign. Ooooops. *blonde girl shrugging emoji*
