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.

***THE PITS ANNOUNCEMENT*** The best books published in 2018 will eligible for the annual Avocado Asimov Award. The post will go up on 12/11. List your top 10 2018 books, with 10 points for first, 9 for second, and so forth.

This week’s recommended discussion: books that you’ve read thanks to the Avocado. Did you finally read a Book Nook “one-of-us” books? What about something that sounded good, or a sought-out recommendation? Or something discussed in another of our other wonderful threads – any of the bounty of our community.

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).
