There are bookstores and then there is Powell’s. I am lucky enough to live in the same city as the indomitable, inconquerable, unmappable Powell’s flagship store in downtown Portland, Oregon. It should go without saying, that if you ever find yourself here in Stumptown aka The Rose City, aka Bridgetown aka PDX, you owe yourself a visit.

But even if that never happens, Powell’s should still be on your book shopping list. They have an incredible website featuring all the new books you could want, listed right alongside their full used book inventory. And you don’t have to navigate a billion individual sellers on some other website that list used books; all of these come straight from Powell’s.

So, to enter for a chance to win $250 to spend at Powell’s, online or in person, fill out the entry for below, including signing up for the FSG Work in Progress newsletter from Macmillan to receive the front line news in literary fiction, poetry, along with interviews with authors from Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Thanks to them for making this giveaway possible.

Here are the rules:

The sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, and the District of Columbia (excluding Puerto Rico and all other US territories), who are eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry. One winner will be randomly selected and notified via entered email. Entries will be accepted until December 31st at 11:5pm pacific time. One entry per email address.

OK, enough preliminaries! On to the entry form! Good luck!
