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:  Which books are you proud to have read (weirdly proud or just normal proud)?  Inspired by a comment about King a few weeks ago, I realize I’m weirdly proud of having read Tommyknockers twice.  I underestimated how fast I’d read what I brought on a trip, and that was the only other book I could find in English.  Granted, I wouldn’t have chosen to do that, but since it happened, I’m taking credit (such as it is!).

Because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone. The OTs are full of contextless clutter and reactions, and I want to keep that out of this thread. Pictures relevant to a post are fine, though.

upcoming topics:
9/23:  banned book week starts September 27
9/30:  treat yourself
10/7:  adaptations redux (always new ones to discuss)
10/14:  swap out books from high school required reading lists
10/21:  trick or treat (h/t MisterSplendiferous)
10/28:  masters of horror (h/t MisterSplendiferous)
