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: In honor of Valentine’s Day, what are some of your favorite books about love or heartache? Which books get it right, and which absolutely do not?

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:
2/20: books that turned you on to a subject or genre (h/t upvote moneydog)
2/27: books that hurt (h/t Thomas the Fifth)
3/6: books as clues or touchstones in TV or movies
3/13: scamming authors and epic little liars (h/t a quiet storm)

Book Nook posts every Wednesday at 8:15 AM Eastern.
