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: favorite book series when you were in middle school.
hat tip to MisterSplendiferous

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:
7/17: reading spirals (h/t to romanes eunt domus)
7/24: subjects in your wheelhouse and what writers get right or wrong
7/31: the meaningfulness of books set where you live (h/t to Thomas the Fifth)

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