As well as randomly placed baskets incase your book haul rapidly gains enough weight to pull your arms off.
At one of the entrances, Powell's Bookstore was kind enough to supply book buyers an informational desk. The people who work at the bookstore are just like you, so don't be afraid to ask for help. They will understand you in all the ways normal (non-readers) don't. I get help from them every single time I have gone to Powell's because it was too overwhelming.
Wherever you look, books will fill your vision. Even at the cashier counters, there are books waiting to be taken home. Floors and floors of books; big and small waiting for a loving bibliophile to take them home and place them in their rightful place.
There is one specific room that is worth mentioning. The Rose Room is filled with young adult and middle grade novels. This room is appealing to all ages, adults to teenagers to second graders. The shelves are filled with authors A-Z (duh!) but it's so confusing. There is even a whole section where you can buy manga if you are into that stuff!
If you can't tell, I love this store because Park City does not offer such store. I mean we have a small independent bookstore which is better than nothing but we don't have a Costco for books. I don't want to hate on the bookstore but I would prefer something like Powell's but hey, you can't always get want you want (sadly).
Thank you for reading my never ending rant about Powell's. I hope when you get a chance to go to Portland, stop by Powell's and I guarantee, you will have the time of your life.
And just for the fun of it, here is a picture of me enjoying my favorite room; the Rose Room (get it? hehe):
