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: Are there any books that are part of your Halloween traditions? Do you read scary stories more this time of year, and get a little thrill thinking that maybe the veil really is thinner? Do you read folk tales to your kids, tell more campfire stories?

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:
11/7: geography pt. 2 – books that can only be set where they are
11/14: writers you want to meet (the writers meet each other) – h/t W.S. Punk
