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 non-fiction books about books, publishing, writers, or writing ?

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:
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)

Book Nook posts every Wednesday at 8:15 AM Eastern. (Unless WordPress borks.)
