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: We all can think of writers with strong ideas or personalities. Are there ones who might get along with other writers like gangbusters, completely disagree with others but have fun arguments, or who’ve already had intertextual conversations? What are some dream meetings of writers you’d like to see?
hat tip to W.S. Punk

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).
