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: With the fall equinox behind us, and winter just ahead, are there ways your reading habits are affected by the changing of the seasons? Will you be staying inside more? Traveling less? Do your tastes or mood change?

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:
10/2: popular books you don’t like (h/t to I Hate Water)
10/9: book paraphernalia
10/16: there’s no shame in self-help
