Meet the Team


DaRonn Washington

I’m DaRonn.  I am the owner of The Book Nook. I have been in the book industry since 2017 and have a bachelor’s in business.   I got my start selling online and out of the back seat of my car until I was able to live my dream of opening a brick and mortar store.

Brittny Escamilla

It’s Brittny here! My experience with the book industry has been on-n-off these last few years. My true passion is data analytics. So it’s been a dream come true working with the Book Nook.


Favorite Quote: It’s a sports reference but I feel it ties into all aspects of life: “Success isn't given. It's earned. On the track, on the field, in the gym. With blood, sweat, and the occasional tear."

Favorite Movie: Bella


What I like to do when not working: Relaxing with a good book, exploring the outdoors with Winston, or in the winter-time a good (video) game
