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: books about music or art or anything like that. How do books attempt to describe something that is often nonverbal and strictly emotional (for lay people, anyway).
hat tip to troubled by nouns

Settle into your favorite chair, and let’s celebrate the written word.
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:
5/22: wrong description on jacket (h/t to a quiet storm)
5/29: beach/vacation reads (h/t to MisterSplendiferous)
