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: Is there any book you like or love, but for some reason cannot keep on your shelf or openly display? Are there any books for which you’ve hidden the cover when reading in public?
(hat tip to CineCraft)

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. Pictures of books related to a post are fine, though.

upcoming topics:
9/4: less than the sum of its parts (h/t to Robert Maitland, Architect)
9/11: how structure informs character interpretation and growth
9/18: bad reading habits (h/t to the good king snugglewumps)
9/25: changing seasons
