The colorful shelves, feel of the pages, hum of whispered conversations, and, oh—that fresh book smell (just ask any bibliophile: books have a smell, and it’s divine). Visiting a bookstore is one of life’s greatest simple pleasures . . . and visiting a historic bookstore? That’s positively perfect. And Oregon has a bookstore dating all the way back to 1870. The oldest bookstore in Oregon, Klindt’s is a delightful experience for book lovers.
