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: What hidden gems have you found at book sales, garage sales, estate sales, used book stores, etc.? Pictures are encouraged for this one!

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:
10/30: Halloween reads
11/6: notable opening lines (h/t to Colonel Mustard)
11/13: biographies of fictional people (h/t to The Lancashire Crab)

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