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: reading habits. What influences how or when you read? Do you stop everything for a new book, power through a series, only read on your commute? Does how you read affect how you process what you read? I’ve been putting my library card through its paces since I got it, and my hold list has totally dictated my reading for the past couple of months. I’ve been reading everything, as it comes in, before it’s due. For a lifelong book squirrel who collects anything that looks interesting and saves them for later, this is completely foreign to me – but it’s a heck of a lot of fun to challenge myself.

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).
