About the program
Warm up with a good book this winter at Troy Public Library's
3rd Annual Adult Winter Reading Program: Hot Reads for Cold Nights, from January 5 through March 12.

To participate, submit a brief review of each title you read or listen to during the program period. 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 Cold Legacy
Author
Megan Shepherd
Review
As this is the end of the trilogy I have to say this ending satisfied me. I still think the first book was the strongest and most interesting. This one was better than the second book though because there wasn't all the love triangle drama of the first two, the way the second book almost entirely focused on the love triangle. The pacing in this was different from the first two as well and often moved too fast during the action. That said, I enjoyed the twists and turns it took and they was things were resolved for the most part.

Title
The Prosecution of An American President
Author
Vincent Bugliosi
Review
Written by a prominent prosecuting attorney, Bugliosi confirms with CIA documents that Pres.George Bush purposely committed murder by lying to the American people about Iraq being an imminent threat to the USA, the only way that he could legally declare war. While he had immunity as President, he no longer has immunity and can be tried and brought to justice. One trillion dollars were spent, over 4500 US lives were lost, not to mention how we are now hated and now a target around the world after over a million Iraq lives were lost. A must read. Also on DVD.
