On our trip to Portland last spring my husband dragged me to this store. 'Technical books?' I thought. 'What a drag!' Well...guess who ended up dragging who out of the store and guess which one of us ended up buying a big stack of books. I suppose I have to admit that once in awhile I am wrong.

As a math major, I'm used to a puny and disappointing selection in the math section. Powell's technical has a fantastic selection of texts. And if you're not into math that day, they have a great selection of sale books and various toys in the front of the store. It's a nice location too, on the park blocks. I thought the staff was pleasant, as well.

PROS: Great selection
CONS: none

Powells Technical Books puts itself ahead of the crowd because it is different than most book stores out there, which tend to only have a small selection of technical books. This store, which buys and sells technical books displays and impressive variety at reasonable prices.

The little brother to Powells Books big brother a few blocks away, as the title suggests, here you'll find just books for geeks. Many are new, many are used (probably more), and plenty are only of historical/niche interest given the rapid pace at which technical books date themselves. Like the main store, you can also bring in your used technical books to sell.
