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:  overshadowed.  Which books, characters, or writers have been overshadowed?  Is a book’s reputation larger than its actual merit?  Has one superstar book eclipsed a writer’s other works?  Has a character become so popular they force the writer to overuse them or keep them around too long?     

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:

7/7:  captures a truth about your country/city/region
7/14:  weird/ unexpected search result
7/21:  world lit (every 80 days)
7/28:  no two people ever read the same book
