Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Powell’s has been part of my bookstore going experience since childhood. If you are a book lover it’s worth a trip to Portland, Oregon to visit Powell’s Books. The original store was open in 1971, and now there are six locations around Portland.
I didn’t read much in 2009. I started many books, but completed few, therefore I’ve written very little about books here at HeidiTown. When I saw a list of Powell’s staff top book picks of 2009, I thought I’d share it with my audience.
