Aaron Hicklin Wants You to Read More Books

T Magazine writes: 
Hicklin aims to make bookselling more selective and personal — in other words, everything that Amazon is not — by attaching familiar names to titles and having them explain why those books have shaped them. “I approach people who, I think, practice their craft really well,” Hicklin said. “They’re not celebrities so much as celebrated individuals who do what they do excellently. The books are a reflection of their development and their evolution. But they’re also just great recommendations.”
