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: As a reader, what are your “Achilles Heel” elements of books? For example, what literary techniques slow you down or cause difficulty for you as a reader – shifting narrators, non-linear time frames, the use of a unique vocabulary, etc.
(hat tip to Pastyjournalist)
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.
