Great writers are great readers! Join us on the Plot Factory Discord server for Book Nook. Each month we'll suggest a selection of six titles (we will always include one free to access title and one YA title) of various genres; you can read as many of the six featured titles you like - one of them, or all of them! - to take part and jump into our Book Nook text and voice chat channels to discuss at any time during the month.

Here are September's picks:


  1. The Martian

    By Andy Weir (Science Fiction, Survival)
    I’m stranded on Mars.I have no way to communicate with Earth.
    I’m in a Habitat designed to last 31 days.
    If the Oxygenator breaks down, I’ll suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I’ll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I’ll just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I’ll eventually run out of food and starve to death.
    So yeah. I’m screwed.
