It’s hot outside, folks… have you noticed? I polled the Rioters and got some good suggestions on what to read when you can’t take the heat. There was a resounding call to read books that are set in cold weather. So, here’s to tricking our brains a little. (Be sure to add to the list if you have suggestions as this is, obviously, not a comprehensive list).

- Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving

- The Secret History by Donna Tartt
