Some upcoming local events that might be interesting:

March 26, 2008 – Multnomah County Library Title Wave Used Book Sale

April 25-26, 2008 - Rose City Used Book Fair

November 7-9, 2008 - Wordstock – Portland’s Annual Festival of the Book. This one is so far out that they haven’t posted the individual events yet, but always good to get it on your calendar.

Thanks, obsessionz! I have the March and April gigs on my calendar already.

I notice you've been busy entering stuff on the Local channel, thanks for all your work.

I thought I knew every bookstore within a 500 mile radius, but trying to enter them on Local has proved me wrong. I have found quite a few that I never heard of, but it will be great to have them all in one place. Christiguc has been entering libraries by the dozen.

Hey, you two! Is there a chance of reviving your Portland group? Maybe I can propose a meet-up where some Seattle LTers ride the train to Portland. What do you think?

I was surprised to see that the Portland group, and the Powells group, had fallen into inactive status. Everyone must be too busy reading (or buying) books to bother participating in a group. I am very pleased to see that the Powells events are now being added automatically. I had been adding them individually when I had time, but with daily events at several locations, it was really hard to keep up.

You probably know this, but Powells (both the main store and the technical store) is within walking distance from Union Station. Several other bookstores are accessible by MAX light rail, streetcar, or bus. I am actually fairly antisocial, but others may want to participate in your proposed meetup.

Great news! we have one previously Seattle person now living in Vancouver WA who might participate. And I have a friend from college who would probably join us just to see me, and I her. We will work on this, I think

nice to see you still around oregonobsessionz
