Welcome to my bookshelf! Most of these books I have collected on my shelves are about Portland or Oregon, and/or by local authors. I own and have read most of them. I can heartily recommend them all. If you buy any books through the links here, as a Powells.com Partner, I receive a small percentage of the cost, which helps me maintain Dave Know Portland.
Thank you for perusing my selections!
I’ve grouped books into several categories, each with its own bookshelf:
Portland Guides – histories and guides to Portland travel, nature, architecture, etc.
Local Authors – books by local authors and/or containing Portland or Oregon themes
Oregon Guides – histories and guides to Oregon travel, nature, politics, etc.
