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: Where do you go for recommendations, or how do you find new books to read? I get a ton of recommendations here – without even trying! But when I’m doing some late-night browsing on Amazon, I always read the most negative reviews to see if the criticisms make sense.
h/t sallgood, man

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).

upcoming topics:
1/10: how many do you read at the same time (h/t Colonel Mustard)
1/17: this book is killing me
