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: Are there books you were forced to read, then re-read them later and had a different reaction. Did a high school teacher or a book club torture you, then were later vindicated? Did you love a book when you were younger, then revisited it and felt different?

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:
4/10: when do you give up on a book (h/t sic humor)

Book Nook posts every Wednesday at 8:15 AM Eastern (unless WordPress suddenly changed things up on me, like it did last week).
