Powell's Book Store(s)
|||||Se Me Hizo Facil - Chavela Vargas||]|
since this list seems to have come alive as of late, i've wanted to ask for sometime: which do you prefer? the downtown powell's? or hawthorne? i find hawthorne exceptionally adequate for a neighborhood bookstore, but sometimes i wonder 'why in god's sweet name is this store NOT big enough to take up the entire block?' i don't think the hawthorne regulars would mind, and all of us who hate crossing that river and trying to find parking would probably sell our souls for something like that. but at the same time, there is a kind of magic that happens when you take that special trip downtown (it's special for me anyway, being a SE Snob) to spend a few hours amongst all that.
when i decide to 'Go To Powell's' this sort of decision is critical.
what are your thoughts?
