    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. 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


  2. 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


  3. 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


  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    Recommended by Lizzy June 17, 2014


  6. The Glass Sentence

    It's 1891 in Boston, but time hasn't quite been the same since the Great Disruption. It varies, depending on where in the world you are. Sophia lives with her uncle, a renowned cartographer who suddenly gets kidnapped. Sophia sets out to find him, and the adventure begins. Exquisite world-building and a cast of memorable characters make this an outstanding novel, and you won't want to miss the pirates!

    Recommended by Mary Jo June 17, 2014


  7. Dreamwood

    Set in an alternate Pacific Northwest home to outlaws, werewolf princesses, a magical tree, a noble native population, and more, Dreamwood follows tenacious Lucy and her new friend Pete as they set out to find Lucy's father, a ghostologist who has recently disappeared while doing research. This is a super fun, smart read with a lot of adventure mixed in.

    Recommended by Abby June 17, 2014


  8. The Rise and Fall of Great Powers

    The Rise and Fall of Great Powers has a wonderful sense of time and place ('88 Bangkok, '99 New York, '11 Wales) and a great cast of characters (Tooly, Venn, Humphrey). On the last page, I felt lucky to have met these newfound friends but sad to say goodbye.

    Recommended by Shawn D. June 17, 2014


  9. The Sound of Things Falling

    Set in the aftermath of Colombia's horrific drug wars, Vásquez's elegant novel provides an intimate look at a generation still coming to terms with the crimes of a not-so-distant past. Written from the perspective of a law professor who unknowingly befriends a drug mule, The Sound of Things Falling offers a wholly original story told with an intensity that reverberates.

    Recommended by Abby June 17, 2014


  10. Hard Choices

    It's 2014 and Hillary Clinton's at the top of her game: polling high and openly contemplating a run for the White House. Her latest memoir is a must-read for Clinton fans and foes wanting the dirt on her time in the Obama administration and clues about where she's headed next.

    Recommended by Rhianna Walton June 17, 2014


  11. The Girl with All the Gifts

    Ten-year-old Melanie's entire world is a windowless prison. She has never seen the sky. She has only seen pictures of flowers and kittens. Melanie loves school, although sometimes students are taken away never to return. This is a novel of survival and hope. And zombies.

    Recommended by Tracey T. June 17, 2014


  12. (Don't You) Forget about Me

    This is the story of two sisters and the memories they tried to forget. This is the story of a town where magic ripples through everyday life in quiet eddies. This is the story of the dark price that everyone pays when wishes come true.
