here's something else I never expected
I just went to see what's coming to me this time around from Powell's Indiespensable Program and was kind of, no, strike that, surprisingly shocked that they are no longer taking subscriptions for Indiespensable. This is my favorite book subscription program -- not only do you get the scheduled signed first edition, but you also get an eclectic range of local goodies included in the package. I've received such cool stuff as boutique chocolate, salted caramel ice cream sauce, a tote bag, advanced reader copies of books, tea, coffee, etc, pretty much anything locally made except Oregon or Pacific Northwest microbrews. I guess it's become so popular that they're having to scale back on the program. Good for Powell's, but not so good for all of the people I've told about Indiespensable.
