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: We’ve talked about adaptations a lot, but how about this time we talk about biopics about writers. The only criteria is that the subjects have to be real people (not Barton Fink, etc.).
Hat tip to a quiet storm
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).
12/6: real books or authors in fictional settings redux
12/13: best of 2017 (read this year, not necessarily published this year; separate from The Pits*)
12/20: an Avocado recommended it, you read it
12/27: resolutions, looking forward to in 2018
1/3: where we get our recommendations
*The Avocado’s annual awards for best pop culture of the year, The Pits will bestow the newly minted Asimov Award for Best Book of 2017. Get your top 10 (or however many you have) lists of 2017 ready, and look for the nominations post on 12/7.
