The Largest Independent Bookstore In Oregon Has More Than One Million Books

If you love books, you probably spend a lot of time in libraries and bookstores, and you love whiling away an entire afternoon amongst the shelves. There’s a bookstore in Portland that’s so large that it would take you weeks to properly explore the entire store.
