Powells can always be counted on for the unusual

I think of Powells, the biggest bookstore west of Mississippi, as my hometown bookstore. And it’s even kind of true. I was born in Portland, even though I grew up in tiny Medford, OR, where the closest thing to a bookstore was JK Gills, which more was a stationery store.

Anyway, a Publishers Weekly blogger fell in love with these clever kid's lit water bottles they carry. Powells, with its INDIEspensible program, and its unusual events, can always be counted on to do something eye-catching, thought-provoking, and just plain fun.

[And for the record, I don’t even know any one who works there any more, although I used to.]
