"I think we take the best elements of all the Powell's stores and roll them into one," says store manager Paul Smailes. "We have the big store feel of the City of Books, a very large technical book selection to serve our neighbors like Tektronix, Intel, and Nike, along with the largest children's book section of any book store on the West Coast." An expanded author events space and upgraded amenities bring more best-selling authors and children's events to Cedar Hills Crossing. Each month the store hosts authors such as Mirielle Guiliano, Erik Larson, Nick Bantok, and Christopher Kimball. The funky atmosphere of a Powell's Bookstore and a knowledgeable book-loving staff complete this biblio paradise in Portland's western suburbs.

Here are just some of the books we're talking about at Powell's.

  1. Everything I Never Told You

    After you read this book, if you're a parent, be prepared to call your children and apologize for everything you've ever done.

    When death rips apart the Lee family, it becomes quite clear that Marilyn and James have not been the parents they imagined themselves to be. Lydia, Nathan, and Hannah have been molded, bent, and stunted by their mom and dad, yet the Lees are far from bad parents. This is a sort of study of the myriad ways in which we damage our children while trying our best to provide structure, support, and motivation in their lives. This is also a beautifully written story about one family's experience with sudden death, and how that death affects everything they know. Ng is a great writer, and she captures all the nuances of a family on the brink of disaster.

  2. All the Light We Cannot See

    Doerr creates a haunting masterpiece of WWII fiction with All the Light We Cannot See. Weaving together the stories of a 17-year-old German soldier and a 16-year-old blind French girl, Doerr shows all the hell of war but also the beauty of humanity. I raced through this completely riveting 500-page book in three days, desperately hoping for an outcome that wasn't horrific. St. Malo, the walled coastal city in France, becomes a character in its own right: both utterly charming yet frighteningly overrun with Nazis.

    Radio technology, three-dimensional maps, and a priceless jewel drive the plot, but the real kernel of truth here is the absolute transcendence of human kindness over the most unimaginable circumstances. The raw emotion with which Doerr anoints his story bumps it up into a class beyond your average WWII novel into the status of a modern classic. Doerr's profound book is a must-read.

  3. Buried Giant

    A sometimes quiet, sometimes tense quest novel, The Buried Giant weaves the pastoral with the magical. An elderly couple start a journey to visit the son they haven't seen in years. Anticipating an easy trip, they soon become entangled with a warrior, a knight, and a sleeping dragon, not to mention pixies and slightly sinister boatmen. Not just a fantasy story, Ishiguro has much to say about marriage, trust, memory, and love. With a nod to Charlie Kaufman's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Ishiguro asks whether or not, if possible, we would choose to keep our painful memories. Do they make us who we are? Do they change us into other people? Before they know it, the elderly couple realizes the choice they make about memory will affect their entire world. Sweet, and bittersweet as well, The Buried Giant is an unexpected story from a literary giant.

  4. Spool of Blue Thread

    Tyler's story of three generations of the Whitshank family has all the typical hallmarks for which she is so well known. There is family drama and dysfunction and sorrow aplenty, but Tyler also has an amazing way of exposing family in all its ugly and beautiful glory. These characters love each other, except when they don't, and every interaction is crackling with Tyler's quirky and unassuming wit. Full of layered, whole characters, A Spool of Blue Thread shows how lives intersect — very rarely neatly — and how that mess gives meaning to every human connection. Tyler is a master of her craft — this being her 20th novel — and she is a treasure to read. You will recognize your own family (and yourself) in these pages, and cry, laugh, and cringe accordingly. So lovely!

  5. We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

    My advice on this book: do not read any reviews, blurbs, synopses, or even the back cover (or front, for that matter)! Just read the book! It's one of those rare books that you need to approach blind; just dive in and experience it. The less you know, the better. You will fall under its crazy spell.

  6. Untamed State

    An Untamed State is the kind of book that just slices into you — forcing you to feel all its emotions. Gay digs deep and tells a story so searing, so awful, and so beautiful, it's hard to even describe. Set in modern day Haiti and America, this harrowing tale of a woman held captive for 13 days feels like Gay is holding your feet to the fire; the pain in these pages is palpable. However, there is redemption here; there is hope. If your reading life needs to be shaken up, if it needs an injection of real emotion, this is your book: it's both excruciating and exquisite.

  7. The Power of One

    This book had a huge impact on me. I read it when I was in middle school and was completely hypnotized by the descriptions of South Africa and the people who lived there. A couple of years later, in high school, I decided to become an exchange student and when one of the options of places to go was South Africa, I remembered the quality of the air and the landscape and the magic that Bryce Courtenay created and decided that's where I needed to go. Ultimately I lived in Johannesburg for eight months and had a totally life-altering time, probably in large part because of this book.

  8. Into Thin Air

    A deadly storm striking tragedy on unsuspecting climbers isn't subject matter I would typically expect to inspire adventure. Yet Jon Krakauer's riveting account of a disastrous 1999 ascent of Mt. Everest did just that. At its heart, this outstanding book thrillingly recounts an ill-fated and deadly climb. But the remarkable reportage also captures the striking landscape of the Himalayas, and the excitement of the sport of climbing — two compelling seeds for adventure. While I didn't attempt to bag any mountain peaks, Krakauer's tale led me to trek the Annapurnas to personally experience the adventure and beauty of the region.

  9. The Sun Also Rises

    I read this book during my senior year of college to take a break from my business reading requirements. It inspired me to buy a plane ticket to Spain as a graduation present to myself. I went and ran with the bulls in Pamplona and felt like I was living out a story. I will always remember this exciting time in my life that was inspired by great literature.

  10. Total Chaos

    While living in Spain, I happened to pick up Total Chaos and was immediately transported to the crime-ridden backstreets of Marseilles, so much so that I convinced a couple friends that we had to visit. A short while later, there we were, following Detective Fabio Montale's footsteps through the labyrinthine Arab quarter, getting blitzed on pastis, and wondering if the little man with the moustache was an assassin.

  11. A Thief of Time

    Though fiction, Hillerman's books are woven with notes of true Navajo history. In this book, sacred ground is ravaged. A noted anthropologist vanishes. Two corpses are discovered, and Navajo Tribal Policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee unearth an astonishing truth. This was the first book of many of Hillerman's I read. They apparently seeped into these Northwest bones. Several years later, I was compelled to move to dry New Mexico, where the surroundings felt familiar, and I met Navajo friends on the terrain that Hillerman had incorporated into his writing.

  12. On the Road

    I was never much of a traveler until I read Kerouac's classic. Soon after reading On the Road, I took my first solo road trip from St. Paul to San Diego. It wasn't long after that I was driving all around the states, and my travel itch did not go away. I eventually joined the Peace Corps and spent over two years living aboard. I believe it all began with On the Road.
