Powell’s City of Books

I visited Powell’s City of Books on Monday June 5th, 2017. It’s a massive bookstore located in Portland, Oregon. You could get lost in there. I bought only 1 book: 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. It was in the bookclub section and during that time there was talk among a couple of my friends to start a bookclub so I thought it’d be a good place to start. But instead I decided that I would read through the book and try to get through as many books as I can as a challenge for myself! I haven’t quite gotten to it yet but I’d like to, I just have too many books that I want to read that aren’t in that big book. Know what I mean? Here’s where I’m gonna keep track of that challenge once I start! I compared it to Julie and Julia, how Julie Powell (how fitting right?!) follows every single one of Julia’s recipes from her cookbook and blogs about it.

My next stop is either The Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle or BookBar, Denver. Stay tuned for the next installment of 19 Bookstores!
