something like (paraphrasing) you know, since you have Powell’s you can never leave Portland. It’s really a Portland intoutisitn. The city wouldn’t be the same without it. Another Portland book store I love is New Renaissance. It’s on N.W. 23rd, in a couple of old turn-of-the-century houses that have been joined together. It’s a New Age store, so only for those who have a spiritual bent, but it’s very cool and has a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, they don’t carry much fiction. Sigh. I think I’m going to have to make a road trip soon.Tori Minard`s last blog was
