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
Fat Chanc: Beating the Odds
Author
Robert H. Lustig, M.D.
Review
Very detailed book about the multiple confounding causes of obesity. Author focuses on the effects of sugar on our bodies' metabolism as well as the roles different fats, proteins, other carbohydrates and fiber play in a healthy diet. Not a quick read despite some repetition of the material throughout the book. To summarize for a healthier life -eat fiber, take in less sugar,
exercise.

Title
Killing Patton
Author
Bill O'Reilly
Review
This is the first Bill O'Reilly book I have read and I was pleasantly surprised. I am a history buff. The book really sets the stage for the conflicts Patton had within his own Army. Very interesting facts. By the end of the book, I had my own conclusion as to why/how/who killed Patton. I believe after this book you will too. Very good read for a history buff.
