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: What makes for a good biography, memoir, or autobiography? Historical or current, trashy or respectable, it’s a great genre. What are some of your favorites? Who was a surprisingly good story teller? One of my favorites is Jon Cryer – he was candid but not dishy, honest about himself, thoughtful, and an utterly charming and engaging writer.

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.
