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 optional discussion topic: favorite publishers and imprints. Do you enjoy the aesthetics of much-loved Penguins (cloth bound or paperbacks)? Are there publishers you’ve found to be reliable sources of good reads? I’m a big fan of the Classics imprint from New York Review Books; even if I’m not interested in every title, I know each of them is worth reading. When I started reading more crime fiction, I discovered that Hachette has published most of my favorites.
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.
3/4: believe the hype
3/11: dual identity / duplicitous or unreliable narrators (h/t to lebkuchen)
