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!

Waiting to be Heard
Author
Amanda Knox
Review
Before reading her book, I really didn't know that much about Ms. Knox or her trial in Italy. The first 2/3s of the book I found her irritating and either incredibly gullible or just dumb. But in the last 1/3 of the book I found myself starting to like her, believe her and hoping that she would come out of the ordeal okay. The writing is basic but it is an interesting story and worth reading.

The Power of Habit
Author
Charles Duhigg
Review
This book talks about habits - why we do what we do in life and business. It is one of the thought provoking books I have read in a long time. This book talks about how several people changed their habits they don't want to continue. Also, gives ideas on how we could change ours. Overall, very informative.
