Time for book lovers to cry
My favourite Portland bookstore is Powell's, but Jeremy's affectionate tribute to the recently closed Fritzler's bookstore makes me wish that I had known about that bookstore too.
Not that it would have helped much, as whenever I have gone on a daytrip to Portland, it's been with my grandmother and she likes to stay in downtown Portland where Powell's--a used bookstore the size of a large department store--is. No usedbooks megastore where I live, unfortunately. If I ever hit the lottery, maybe I should open one.
