Simply the best spot in PDX to find something you've never read/seen/imagined before, this downtown "small press emporium" is like the rabbit hole of literature, you're never quite the same once you've ventured inside.
Not every city is fortunate enough to have a bookstore like this--it focuses on zines, independently published books and micropress publishers.
Reading Frenzy is a rare "independent press emporium" housing zines, magazines, and other independent media. And they're open to consignment. Show up with your stuff Thurs-Sun, 11am-7pm. They have a narrow scope though, don't be surprised if your work doesn't fit.
Quirky 'zines, comics and books with indie flair – Reading Frenzy is kind of like your friendly neighborhood newsstand -- without the Vogue, Good Housekeeping, Newsweek or Guns & Ammo. Instead, Reading Frenzy offers a fun, funky and quirky assortment of indie comics, 'zines and books for a decidedly different point of view than the mainstream media. You'll find heartfelt, shoe-gazing comics, 'zines for vegan Martha Stewarts, oddly cute Japanese stationery and cards and a lot, lot more. Reading Frenzy clearly supports the indie creator based in Portland and across the USA, and as a result, you'll often find little gems of creativity that just aren't available in your average bookstore or newstand. It can be a little too emo/hipster for some, but it's worth a visit to see what is bubbling under in Portland's zine scene.
