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 optional discussion topic: In honor of the world’s worst holiday, what are some of your favorite examples of literary trickery? Authors who withheld important information, stylistic tricks, narrator shenanigans – anything you can think of.

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:
4/8: organizing your own collection – shelfies welcome
4/15: cookbooks (h/t to Lil Lentil)
4/22: rank books by author (h/t to Troubled)

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