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).
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
