    Beaverton, OR 97005 (map/directions) United States of America Work 503 228 4651 45.49436771181202, -122.81029343605042 Powell's Books has served Beaverton, Oregon, with a west-side location since 1984. In November 2006, Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing opened, confirming the company's commitment to Beaverton customers. The new store location with 32,500 square feet is more than double the space of the previous Cascade Plaza location and rivals the City of Books in downtown Portland. (Okay, we may be pushing it with that statement since the Burnside location is over 68,000 square feet of retail space!) With over half a million used, new, rare, and hard-to-find titles, it's very easy to get lost in the aisles of Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing. "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. The entirety of the Cedar Hills Crossing mall is Wi-Fi enabled, so you can connect your laptop to the wireless network from anywhere in our store.

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

  1. Landline

    If we could call into the past and speak to earlier loves, would we beg them to let us go or egg them on in their long-ago pursuit of our affections? Rowell's tale of a marriage in crisis is woven with this particular bit of magic, which forces us to reimagine our personal narratives and reconsider our previous selves.

    Recommended by The Dot July 3, 2014


  2. California

    This book proves definitively that when Sherman Alexie and Stephen Colbert tell you to read a book, you should probably go ahead and do it. Edan Lepucki creates a world full of morally ambiguous characters who force you to examine the systems of security and trust that we create for ourselves. A disturbingly believable post-apocalyptic novel, California exposes just how vulnerable the bonds of blood, marriage, and friendship can be.

  3. The Story of the Human Body

    An epic journey through our biological history and the forces that have shaped the evolving human body over millions of years, this is science writing at its finest.

    Recommended by Ted June 27, 2014


  4. Preserving by the Pint

    For any would-be-canner who is short on space or time, Preserving by the Pint is exactly what you've been dreaming of. This book teaches you how to create delicious preserves without committing to an entire pantry full of any one thing. The pictures are gorgeous and so inspiring that I'm already planning my summer preserving schedule!

  5. My Teacher Is a Monster! (No, I Am Not.)

    Bobby's teacher is a monster! I mean, just look at her! So, what happens when he finds her in his favorite spot in the park? Keep your eye on Peter Brown's hilarious and subtly morphing illustrations in this lovely book about friendship and the way we see each other.

    Recommended by Gigi Little June 27, 2014


  6. Going Somewhere

    Going Somewhere is an adventure, a love story, and an utterly addictive read. Benson's tale of crossing the country by bike with his girlfriend might make you think twice about making the same journey, but you won't be able to tear yourself away from this sharp-eyed, hilarious memoir.

    Recommended by Josephine June 27, 2014


  7. Conversion

    Suspenseful and enjoyably creepy, Conversion tells the story of a private high school engaged in modern-day Salem witch trials. Colleen's friends are suddenly falling ill, and no one quite understands why.

    Recommended by Mary Jo June 27, 2014


  8. Midnight Library

    This delightful bedtime book is a perfect addition to a young reader's collection. Illustrated in charming linocut prints is the story of a little librarian and her owl assistants, who go on reading adventures to help the animals that inhabit the night library!

    Recommended by Aubrey June 20, 2014


  9. Adventures with Barefoot Critters

    What do the forest creatures do all year? Teagan White weaves an alphabetical tale with rhyming verse and wistful, whimsical old-fashioned illustrations. It's a sweet way for kids to learn not only the alphabet but the months of the year and the turn of the seasons.

    Recommended by Naomi June 20, 2014


  10. The Silkworm

    An alluring mystery written in a classic style, the new Cormoran Strike novel from J. K. Rowling (Galbraith is a pseudonym) is utterly satisfying. Gritty, well-paced, and peopled with compelling characters, The Silkworm is a compulsive, clue-driven read.

    Recommended by Ted June 19, 2014


  11. The Prince of Venice Beach

    Cali is enjoying being hired to find people on the streets of Venice Beach, until he meets a young woman who causes him to question the morality of finding people who don't want to be found. This is an exciting mystery, perfect for your summer reading list.

    Recommended by Jen M. June 17, 2014


  12. Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever?

    This book is a series of conversations — dialogue only — between a guy and the various people he has kidnapped and shackled in separate buildings. Slowly you discover who he is and why he's done what he's done. Weird and intriguing, it's one of the most thought-provoking and engaging books I've read in a while.
