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:  every time I base a discussion on events in America, I realize I could be alienating non-US Avocados.  I apologize if I’ve made anyone feel left out.  So, using that as a starting point for this topic, I want to ask what you all want to see going forward – here in the Book Nook, or in the world of publishing and books.  What’s on your wishlist for inclusivity?

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:
2/3:  books without romance (h/t to Lavender Gooms)
2/10:  love stories (h/t to MisterSplendiferous)
