Michael Powell has been the owner of Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon since 1981. According to the bookstore Web site: Michael and his staff have intentionally created a reader-centered bookstore: "With the wooden shelves, the cement floors, the tall aisles, we have a sense of space. People don't feel that the only function of the place is to sell them something. A place where the lights are a little too dim, a place that's a little dusty, doesn't exude the feeling of buy and get out."
