from The Huffington Post:
We have found the most amazing bookstores in the world– the places that would make any reader shut their laptop, put aside their Kindle, and go out to buy a book. From New York to Portugal to China, we’ve picked the most inspiring.
* EDIT – Page seems to be down, maybe they’re adding Powell’s to the gallery.
Come on, HuffPo– think you forgot one.
Powell’s City of Books is a book lover’s paradise, the largest used and new bookstore in the world. Located in downtown Portland, Oregon, and occupying an entire city block, the City stocks more than a million new and used books. Nine color coded rooms house over 3,500 different sections, offering something for every interest, including an incredible selection of out-of-print and hard-to-find titles.
