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:  snobbery and bias.  Do you have any opinions for or against certain genres?  Do you hold some books in higher esteem than others because they’re more serious, better regarded by critics, written by an indie author/new sensation/established institution?
(hat tip to lebkuchen)

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:
11/25:  Thanksgiving – bounty or thankfulness
12/2:  the new Avocado cult canon
12/9:  bio/memoir/autobio (h/t Colonel Mustard)
12/16:  gateways to the classics (h/t Malice Aforethought)
12/23:  highs and lows of 2020
12/30:  ring in the new for 2021
