The Book Nook Weekly Discussion

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.


This week’s recommended discussion: What are you thankful for? I’m grateful that you folks keep coming back, and have the discussions I look forward to every week. I am also grateful that we have a place to create our own content, including the Spotlights. Check out El Santo’s Writer Spotlight on Tad Williams. If you’re interested in writing your own Spotlight, check out that feature’s guidelines, and give it a whirl!

upcoming topics:
11/29: movies and docs about writers (h/t a quiet storm)
12/6: real in fiction redux
12/13: best of 2017
12/20: the Avocado recommended it, you read it
12/27: resolutions, looking forward to in 2018

One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).
