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 books did you not like when you were younger, but revisited them when you were older, and liked them better? Was it something you read in school? Something you “aged” into by living a little more life, and finally connecting with? Have your tastes changed?

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).
