Powell's City of Books
Whew! You made it to the top. Welcome to the Pearl Room. Here you will find books on everything from architecture to woodworking.

We&apos;ve all heard about the &quot;Red Room&quot; in &quot;Fifty Shades of Gray&quot; by now, but this Red Room skips the whips and instead offers everything from Americana to audio books. Sometimes there is nothing more enjoyable than diving into a book about Native American history. instagram.com See this Instagram photo by @signscamp • 39 likes
The Purple Room offers material on management, books on business, texts on test guides, and more. This is also where you will find the Espresso Book Machine if you&apos;re interested in printing books on demand or self-publishing.<br /> instagram.com 14 Likes, 4 Comments - Angela Lau (@banangela) on Instagram: “Ok, last pic before boarding my flight.

A Rose Room by any other name would smell as sweet, but would it be as packed with children? Hmm.

You&apos;ll need some energy if you&apos;re going to make it all the way to the third floor with a basket full of books. Here you will find the World Cup Coffee and Tea shop, as well as the romance books and graphic novels. <br /><br />#TGTC (Thank God there&apos;s coffee.)<br /> instagram.com 39 Likes, 2 Comments - Manos Zapotecas (@manoszapotecas) on Instagram: “Enjoying a moment of peace after the hustle and bustle of NYC.

All that glitters isn&apos;t gold, but Powell&apos;s Gold Room is the place to go for your required dose of fantasy, horror, mystery, and erotica. Oh, and there&apos;s also nautical fiction, if that&apos;s your sort of thing.<br /> instagram.com 35 Likes, 2 Comments - andy (@letitbe503) on Instagram: “mecca. #powellsbooks #oldbooks #portland #portlandnw #portlandoregon #pacnw #burnside #powells…”
The Blue Room may also be newly remodeled, but it doesn&apos;t let you forget the space&apos;s roots as a used car dealership! This is where you&apos;ll find the classics, dramatic literature, and a wide selection of memoirs and poetry.<br /> instagram.com 34 Likes, 4 Comments - Dew Drop (@mitchadew) on Instagram: “Paradise FOUND”
The Green Room got a recent facelift (or roof-lift, I suppose). This is where you&apos;ll find the bestsellers, recent award-winners, staff picks, and so on. I mean, technically you could just stop here, but there are eight more rooms beckoning you on. Buckle up.<br /> www.travelportland.com
While the rest of the store has a warehouse feel to it, the Rare Book Room has the cozy feel of a home library. Housed in here are thousands of rare and collectible volumes, the oldest of which was written in 1480, and the most expensive carrying a price tag of $350,000. static.tumblr.com
