Jerry Outstanding book. Deaf boy with uncanny ability to communicate with dogs caught up in family tragedy.


message 2: by Rosemary (last edited Jul 16, 2011 06:38PM) (new)

Rosemary Added all books on the Indiespensables list from their website and deleted some books not on the list (e.g. Twilight saga).


message 3: by Marla (new)

Marla I love the "Indiespensables" series from Powell's. The editions are well selected and whoever puts them together with whatever ancillary "gifts" come with each mailing is to be commended for their creativity. I always look forward to opening the box when it arrives as, asides form the book, it's always a surprise. Thanks.


message 4: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin M. Death of Bees is my ultimate favorite. Read it months ago and it's still with me.


message 5: by Jeremiah (new)

Jeremiah Deleted The Art of Fielding and The Interestings since they weren't on the list. Not sure when/why someone added them. Volume 7 was The Lit-Journal Collection, so the books aren't listed, but Volume 3 came with two signed first editions (The Story of Edgar Sawtelle and The Outlander), so there should be as many books on the list as there are Indiespensable volumes.


message 6: by DilanAc (new)

DilanAc I have been looking for this list. Strangely Powell's doesn't seem to have it.
Thank you.

I sent them an email and they emailed me a spreadsheet of all the books in order. Send me a message if you want me to email it to you. I haven't updated it in the last few, but it has all the older ones.

Jeremiah - I have also been looking for a complete list of the Indiespensable books. I'd love to see what they chose over the years.


message 9: by Jeremiah (new)

Jeremiah Just removed The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving. Still not sure why people add books that aren't from Indiespensable...

I have the updated list as a spreadsheet if anyone wants it. Includes other books and gifts as well!
