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:  world literature.  In an effort to incorporate more diversity, we’re going back around the world every 80 days.  Have you read anything recently by writers outside of the American or British monolith of literature?

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:
7/28:  no two persons ever read the same book
