My Big Indie Bookstore – Powell’s in #PDX

As a teen, I used to spend hour upon hour sitting on the floor in the Blue Room reading books.  Now you’ll find me in the Rose Room haunting the children’s books.

The goal today was to buy The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman because my son came home from school saying, “Mom, you have to read this book.  It is the best!”

Other books that came home with us today:

Stagecoach Sal by Deborah Hopkinson
I’m Not Sleepy! by Jonathan Allen
Frankie Pickle and the Pine Run 3000 by Eric Wight
Toot & Puddle The One and Only by Holly Hobbie
The Uninvited Guest by Nina Jaffe
Miriam’s Cup: A Passover Story by Fran Manushkin
Miriam in the Desert by Jacqueline Jules
