A bookseller writes about all the books she comes across in a week and hopes to [someday] read.

Emma Nichols is a bookseller and data nerd currently living in Seattle. She enjoys long walks on the beach, spreadsheets, black coffee, and good books. Every day she seems to come across a book that piques her interest. Instead of taking a picture, writing down the title, and forgetting about it, she’s decided to start tracking these books in a newsletter (this newsletter!). This newsletter is partially inspired by Nick Hornby’s column Stuff I’ve Been Reading in The Believer; except most of the books discussed she hasn’t read [yet].

Emma also records a podcast called Drunk Booksellers, writes about books for the website Book Riot, and curates the quarterly newsletter, Booknotes, at Elliott Bay—the bookstore where she works. You can follow her on Twitter or Instagram.
