Warm up with a good book this winter at Troy Public Library's
2nd Annual Adult Winter Reading Program: Hot Reads for Cold Nights, from January 13 through March 13.

To participate, register beginning December 16. Then, starting January 13, submit a brief review of each title you read or listen to. You don't have to write a novel, but please include enough information for the review to be helpful to someone who is thinking about choosing that title. A short paragraph will do.

Each week, two lucky readers will receive a prize, and a Grand Prize of a Kindle Paperwhite eReader and case will be awarded at the conclusion of the program. Prizes will be awarded by random drawings from all reviews submitted, and are provided by the Friends of the Troy Public Library.

So warm up the long, cold Michigan winter nights with some hot reads from the Library. Stop by the Adult Information desk for suggestions, or check out our Bookletters booklists.

Happy reading!

Title
A Long Way From Chicago
Author
Richard Peck
Review
This is a quick read about two kids from Chicago who visit their very "colorful" southern Grandma. She is not much for conversation, but her antics in the local community will more than amuse you.

Title
Consigned to death
Author
Jane K. Cleland
Review
What a start for a murder mystery! The protagonist is not the detective but the chief suspect! Josie's a gutsy young woman trying to set up business as an antique dealer and appraiser while recovering from the loss of her parents. If you like one nighter mysteries where honesty truly is the best policy, professionals always do their best, and the romance is totally clean, you'll enjoy this story. If you're an antique lover as well, you'll be in hog heaven!
