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:  For Halloween, how can we not talk about our favorite horror books?  Favorite books, authors, scenes, adaptations – anything goes as we enjoy the last week of spooky season.

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. Images related to a post are fine, though.

upcoming topics:
11/4:  no topic due to U.S. elections (please VOTE by 11/3 if you can)
