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: Inspired by multiple mentions by librarians about books taking place in libraries, or featuring librarian characters – what books are about subjects you know well, and what do writers get right or wrong?

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:
7/31: the meaningfulness of books set where you live (h/t to Thomas the Fifth)
8/7: favorite standalone book when you were young
8/14: generation gap
8/21: challenging books
