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: Which books tickle your funny bone? Straight-up humor books, comedy memoirs, snarky non-fiction, comedic novels – what has brought a smile to your face?

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:
9/19: does not translate (h/t Thomas the Fifth) – books that are better in the language written in
9/26: and loser isn’t… – book awards
10/3: reading habits
