I went to Portland over the long weekend. I have been many times before. It is one of my favorite bookish cities to visit. I read Bossypants on the plane, so there will be a review soonish.
Here are the books I picked up mostly at the lovely Powells:
Vanessa Vaselka, Zazen
Philip K. Dick, Ubik
Chad Harbach, The Art of Fielding
Blake Butler, There is No Year
Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis, Wildwood
China Mieville, Embassytown
Morgan Matson, Amy and Roger's Epic Detour
Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go
Borrowed from the friend I was staying with:
Mary Doria Russell, The Sparrow
Do you all buy this many books on vacation? Do you pack an extra big suitcase to accommodate?
