lovemotionstory's call to action reminded me of this; it isn't my favorite Powell's purchase, per se (that would take a lot more thought), but it's one of my favorite memories, and I think about it every time I'm at Powells's.

For my twenty-first birthday, my boyfriend (at this point we'd been officially dating for maybe a month and a half) gave me the best birthday present I've ever gotten to this day. He took me to Powell's and said "Get whatever you want." He even held the basket and I walked back and forth (mostly the Blue Room, with a little Gold Room action thrown in) and chose my books. Every two or three books, I would turn to him and say, "Should I stop now?" and he would shake his head and we would keep going.

I ended up taking home probably 12 books, and the secure knowledge that I had found "the one". :-)

My darlin' wife does that for me every other yule or so - we will go and I will fill up a basket and walk away, and come solstice many/most/all of the books will be under the tree. It's such a wonderful thing!
