DASH Diet Detox
DASH Diet Detox by Kate Barrington (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"The cover of this book is covered in fruits and vegetable, which is in keeping with the Dash Diet as I have understood it. However, I found many of the meals in the book to very heavy in carbs (some breakfasts have 6 servings of carbs) and very light on vegetables. I would not recommend the detox plan, although a couple of the recipes look promising." -- Gholson, 02/28/2017

"I have been advised to start a low-sodium diet and I thought this would be a good place to start. Everything on the menu is simple to prepare and the ingredients for the recipes can be found in any grocery store. This book is a great tool for anyone looking to lower their blood pressure or start living a healthier lifestyle." -- Sharondodom, 01/09/2017

Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Great biography about a modern Genius! " -- Swimmeruk2, 01/15/2017

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"I have greatly enjoyed reading this to my children. An excellent framework to introduce them to the inevitable confusions and challenges of adolescence, along with some god vs. evil stuff that's a little less realistic." -- Tepid Coffee, 02/28/2017

"This is the 4th volume in the Harry Potter series. A fantastic series. This is one of the longer (not the longest) book, so be warned. " -- Draven51, 02/26/2017

Hidden Figures
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"Amazing True Story Of Af. American women working for NASA throughout the 40's & 50's & 60's" -- tgoode, 01/09/2017

"Intriguing detailed account of the black women who worked at Langley Memorial Aeronautic Laboratory in Hampton, VA from the 1930's through the 1970's. This scholarly work reveals a lot about the U.S. in that period as well as the lives of some of the most prominent women in the group. I hope the movie does the heroines justice without unduly romanticizing their incredible achievements. This book could serve as inspiration for young women to pursue education and careers in science and mathematics." -- ERobinson, 02/06/2017

"Once I got used to only meeting each character for a chapter, I really enjoyed this book. I have spent the summer in Ghana so I especially enjoyed being able to picture the scenary and remember the foods the book mentioned. The author does a great job covering many generations whose paths divert and then come back together. " -- Jammin' Reader, 01/29/2017

Prayers for the Stolen
Prayers for the Stolen by Jennifer Clement (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"serious, brutal chronicle of life for Mexican women in dangerous area told through story of one young girl. very difficult to read about but also very thought provoking." -- ropir1, 02/21/2017

"This is the Critical Mass book club selection for March,2017. It's the story of a young girl growing up in a remote mountain area of Mexico where the mothers cut their daughters' hair and make them dress like boys to make them less attractive (and therefore less likely to be kidnapped) to pillaging drug gangs. It's also a well-written social commentary on drug smuggling, illegal Mexican immigration to the U.S., and trafficking of young girls. The prose is spare yet original, and mirrors the gritty themes of the book. I really enjoyed this one, despite its noir novel feel." -- Jhusain, 02/22/2017

Tales of the Peculiar
Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"A very interesting and creative collection of short stories. I wanted to see how the stories would be "Peculiar". The stories are very imaginative putting a new twist on some old sayings such as "it costs an arm and a leg" or "no man is an island". Thoroughly enjoyed the downloadable audio book." -- thewritejim, 02/20/2017

"Fun light read to go along with Miss Peregrine's " -- Myrweleen, 01/21/2017
