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: I didn’t want to be an ugly American when I suggested “America the beautiful” last month, so this time I want to talk about books that demonstrate that it’s a beautiful world. Books about nature, architecture, art – anything that evokes the aesthetic beauty of anywhere in the world that isn’t America.
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).
