A wall of books Part 08: The Pilgrimage

I took my GF to Portland for her birthday this weekend. And like every good trip to Portland, it involves a pilgrimage to Powell's.

I spend most of my time in Powells in the main entry room. That's where they showcase new arrivals and the discount books. In a relatively small space, I get to browse a wide array of genres and discover new books and authors.

This time I also made it into the gold and blue rooms before it was time to go.

I behaved this trip and didn't spend too ridiculous an amount of money. I probably did overpay for a signed first edition of a Jasper Fforde book, but that's okay. I did really enjoy the other Fforde book I read.

Here's what I now must find time to read. Somehow.

Wow, I'm glad I read this post. I love Alton Brown and didn't realize he had a book out based on his recent special. AND that book Infected sounds AWESOME! How did I miss that one?

I've heard great things about Powell's---hope to get there someday.

JD and Cromley - yeah, INFECTED is awesome! I might be biased, though. I know the guy who wrote it ...
