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: waiting is the hardest part. Are you still waiting for George R.R. Martin to finish up the Song of Ice and Fire? Were you one of the Constant Readers who read The Dark Tower books as they were published? Which writers or publishers delayed something you were looking forward to, or had long gaps between installments?
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.
