- Powell's City of Books - This was my
second home while we lived in Portland. Probably the largest bookstore you will ever
actually visit. New and used (hooray!) books are mixed together. Special services
include book searches, school and library services, and used book purchases. And now, they
have their entire catalog online! Too cool!
- Munro's Books of Victoria - Yeah, I know this
place is several hundred miles from Salem, but we like to vacation in Victoria (British
Columbia, that is). We always find time to stop in at Munro's. A nice largish independent
bookstore with a plethora of titles in one of our favorite cities.
Please avoid patronizing the chain bookstores such as Barnes and Noble, Waldenbooks,
Borders, and B. Dalton Bookseller. These chain stores (especially the megastores) have so
much buying power that they are slowly strangling the small independent bookstores all
across North America.
