Here in Portland the local heavyweight bookstore is Powell's, self-determined to be the largest independent bookseller in the world. The main store is 68,000 square feet, divided into nine areas on multiple levels.

Last fall when I went to buy the book there, I first looked in the Business section and nearby categories, where I saw books similar to the competition shown in the photo above. This section is in a fairly prominent location near the secondary entrance (which is now larger than the older front entrance). Alas, no EJ. I went to one of the help desks, and she pointed me to the Economics section... upstairs, tucked away in the middle of a long row of floor-to-ceiling shelves. No one there but me. There were two copies.
