Indiespensable Volume 4?

By my calculation, the 4th Volume of Indiespensable (Powell's subscription book club) should be shipping in just nine days, and Powell's has yet to announce what the next title(s) will be. Strange. The first three volumes were each announced many weeks before the shipping dates. I hope this doesn't mean Indiespensable's days are numbered.

How do you like Indiespensable? I've been thinking of joining and would love some feedback from a current member.

me too (looking for feedback). I'm curios ... I wrote about book-in-the-mail clubs a few weeks back, but Powell's pre-selection process seems much more fine-tuned. I'd love to hear your opinion of it.

Lurking here in Portland, Oregon -- ah, the wonders of Google blog alerts -- and wanted to let you know that Indiespensable is alive and well. Subscribers will be getting an email early next week about our 4th edition. For reasons that will become clear, we're very excited about this one. Hope you will be, too. Please let us know what you think! (And thanks very much for subscribing.)
