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: bad habits when it comes to reading. Do you skim, skip ahead, read the last page, etc.? Do you dog-ear pages or break spines?
(hat tip to the good king snugglewumps)

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:
9/25: changing seasons
10/2: popular books you don’t like (h/t to I Hate Water)
10/9: book paraphernalia

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