If you're bored with blockbusters but don't have time to scour Barnes & Noble's shelves for something unique, Powell's Books—the world's largest independent bookseller—has the solution: Indiespensable, a service that delivers a special selection to your doorstep every six weeks. Past shipments have included a slipcased copy of Karl Marlantes' massive Vietnam novel, Matterhorn; Dave Eggers' The Wild Things; and an exclusive Glen David Gold chapbook illustrated by Patrick McDonnell—all packaged with treats like Dagoba Organic Chocolate and Stash Tea.
