The Book Nook

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: Do you have any books that are a struggle to conquer? Books that you keep abandoning, then inevitably pick up again? Your personal Everest or white whale? Which books do you shake your fist at, and think this book is killing me?

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:
1/24: the unreliable narrator
1/31: overstuffed narrative
2/7: what makes a good biography
2/14: 100 Book Nooks! Goals/milestones OR love and romance.
