Browsers’ Bookstore is a pair of brick-and-mortar bookshops located fairly centrally in Oregon. We have lots of customers who make the trip (pilgrimage?) from Portland, Salem, Eugene, the Oregon Coast, and Eastern Oregon…and a few further afield. We are open six days a week, and hope you can find a way to make Browsers’ a regular stop.

Rose City Book & Paper Fair

On June 16th-17th, we’ll be showing some of our best books and recent acquisitions at the Portland book fair. You may have seen a few pictures that we’ve shared, but we haven’t shown you pictures of our signed Stephen King books, our 18th-century colored botanical plates, a pile of antique scrapbooks, or any of the other hundreds of cool items we’re bringing. Come on by! For more information, please visit:

Where else is Browsers’?

zazieA surprising number of local book buyers discover us through some cool book we have in our online listings or social media. A new one for us is Etsy, so be sure to check out our shop there for books that aren’t easy to find by just looking around our bookstores.

This DJ of Zazie is one of my all-time favorites. The illustrator is Nicolas Bentley, who also did the illustrations for  T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats (the basis for the musical “Cats”.)

We’re now on Instagram

Follow us on Instagram to see some of our most photogenic books and other cool book-related images. We sometimes sell stuff on Instagram before it even makes it to the shelf or our online listings, so it’s a good way to keep in touch with new arrivals.

Can’t make it to the bookstore?

If you don’t live in Oregon, or if we don’t have what you need in stock, you can order new books, movies, music, or ebooks at discounted prices using the link below. (We make a little commission, so you’re still helping us out.)


Thanks for supporting Browsers’ Bookstore!

If you love Browsers’ (which I’m sure you do), you might also like some of our fellow members of the Cascade Booksellers Association. (This is the organization that puts on the annual book fair in Portland.) Buying local really does make a huge difference in our community.
