So the deal is that Powell's announces the selected book before its shipped, but the extras that come in every Indiespensable package are a surprise. This time around, the book was The Childhood of Jesus by J.M. Coetzee. Here are the deets:
Just opened package. All the goods are below.
The whole haul.
Powell's tote bag, Pinot Noir Flake Salt, The Childhood of Jesus.
I'm not sure if I would have normally spent $40 on these particular goods, but it was still very fun to receive this package in the mail. I'll definitely stick around for at least a few more Indiespensable packages and see what else is in store. Next month's book is Donna Tartt's new novel, The Goldfinch.
