My Story

My name is Zoe Taylor and I am the owner of The Novel Nest Bookstore! I graduated from Barton College in 2016 with my Bachelors in Gerontology and in 2019 I graduated from North Carolina State University with my Masters in Parks, Recreation, Tourism, and Sports Management. Full time, I work with older adults in Senior Centers in Johnston County and part-time I am a 911 dispatcher in Raleigh, NC. I recently moved back to Wilson with my cat, Brenda, and was so sad when I learned there still wasn't a bookstore in town or nearby. 

This store started with my own collection of books on a Facebook group and just grew from there. I ran the store out of my second bedroom for about 10 months before I was fortunate enough to obtain a storefront in Downtown Wilson!
