The theme for July is Your Local Bookstore so this post is about my local bookstore. You can see the other posts for this month at this post on Trish's blog.
I'm lucky enough to live in Portland which is the home of Powell's Books. I love Powell's and I did a post last year about their famous downtown location Powell's City of Books. However when I shop for books I typically shop at Powell's location in Beaverton at Cedar Hills Crossing because I live in the western suburbs of Portland and it's much closer to my home and my regular shopping route.

This is a 'smaller' store than the downtown Powells' but small is most definitely a relative term. While small in terms of Powell's it's downright huge compared to many bookstores I have visited.
I love Powell's. I'm there on a regular basis. Sometimes it's just to browse, other times I'm on a mission. Sometimes I'm there to sell my books back.
One thing I appreciate about Poeell's is that as a local Portland resitdent I can order a book from their website and have it sent to the Cedar Hills store to pick up with no shipping costs.
This is just one aisle of my favorite section.
Many booklovers who visit Portland area make a trip to the downtown Powell's but I can usually be found at their Cedar Hills Crossing location.
