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: We’ve been discussing our Halloween reads all month, but here’s one last week to talk up new books, favorites, etc. I recently came home with a clutch of local history books, including one on regional legends and hauntings – which I would’ve passed right by if it wasn’t spooky season.

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:
11/6: notable opening lines (h/t to Colonel Mustard)
11/13: biographies of fictional people (h/t to The Lancashire Crab)
11/20: introductions
11/27: feasts (books that are feasts, OR literal feasts in books)
12/4: opinions against the tide

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