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 do this every few months, but it’s always a fun one. What are some of your favorite books about books, writers, and/or writing – fiction only this week. (We’ll do non-fiction next week.) This includes characters, plot, or even meta works like those of Jasper Fforde.

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:
3/27: books about writers and writing: non-fiction (h/t upvote moneydog)
4/3: books we had to read; is a voluntary re-read different (h/t G 40F6D8)
4/10: when do you give up on a book (h/t sic humor)
