Perhaps keeping in mind our frequent designation as having one of the sexiest staffs in Portland (thanks, Mercury readers!), a whopping 55% of respondents selected A Powell's employee who reads the book to you in the bath as the most desirable addition to our Indiespensable packages.
Or perhaps there are a lot of lonely bathers who frequent this blog and would like anyone — anyone at all — to read to them in the bath. I hate to speculate.
At any rate, you've spoken and we shall respond accordingly. Volume 3 of Indiespensable (not yet announced) will ship with a live Powell's employee enclosed.
Warning: if you receive a human-sized Indiespensable box that doesn't have holes punched in the lid, DO NOT OPEN IT! Just bury the thing in your backyard and let us never mention it again.
Y'all come back next week, y'hear?
