Hi!   	 		You are receiving this email because  you like books, or like us, or asked to receive this email, or perhaps  at some point you talked to one of us or emailed us, and we thought you  might be interested in our new bookstore.  
Emily Books is not a regular bookstore.  It’s more like a club, actually. We only sell ebooks, and only a few of them.
 But maybe you hate ebooks!  We did too,  at first.  But we like instant gratification, and reading a bunch of  books at once. So we started downloading books—but quickly became  bummed that not everything we wanted was available, and that there  wasn’t the kind of bookselling culture around ebooks that there is  around physical books. That might be because two huge corporations  control the sales of most ebooks.  
We want to make reading ebooks and  buying ebooks sustainable for readers, writers, booksellers,  publishers—everyone—in the long run. We want there to eventually be a  lot of places on the internet that are just like your favorite local  independent bookstore.  Emily Books is the first independent ebookstore.  We hope it is the first of many.  
We’re beginning by selling just one  book, adding at least one new title to our inventory monthly. Each book  we sell is available a la carte, or you can buy a subscription and get our picks automatically each month.  
Our first pick, available in ebook for the first time ever, is No More Nice Girls by Ellen Willis. It’s a  collection of essays by one of the most fascinating, cool,  revolutionary thinkers of the late 20th century. For more (a lot more)  about NMNG and Willis’s legacy, head to our blog, where we’ll be posting essays about the book by writers like Sady Doyle, Alice Gregory, Nicole Cliffe, Elizabeth Gumport—and, we hope, you—all month long.  We’re also meeting to talk about the book in the basement of WORD bookstore in Greenpoint on October 22 at 6:30 pm.  We can’t wait to talk to you about this awesome book.  You could be reading it less than a minute from … right now! 
Your friends,
Emily Gould and Ruth Curry
