Tom Nissley is a literate guy. He’s a “Jeopardy!” champ. He’s the author of a delightful compendium of knowledge about books and authors, “A Reader’s Book of Days.” And he’s about to be a bookstore owner – he’s agreed to purchase Santoro’s Books in Greenwood.

Nissley is interviewed tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors television show on state public affairs channel TVW. He and host Terry Tazioli will discuss books, authors and life after “Jeopardy!” Afterword, Terry and co-host Mary Ann Gwinn (that’s me) will talk books. And more books.

“Well Read” airs at 7 and 10 p.m. (in Seattle, Comcast channel 23). Or you can watch it here. 

For more information on “A Reader’s Book of Days,” here’s a recent Q&A I did with Nissley.
