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!

George Orwell
Review
Great read! This novel follows Winston Smith a lower member of The Party in a dystopian world in the year 1984. It is a world without texture, a world where everything must be in perfect order. Winston realizes that this world was created by The Party only to keep them in power and must find a way to break them.

Title
Post Secret
Author
Frank Warren
Review
This is a book written by everyone really. Warren had people send him postcards anonymously revealing secrets they had never told anyone and then he combined them into a book. This book reveals how truly dark life can be.
