Battle of the Books
by Susan Waterworth
Students have checked out Kindles loaded with the books needed to compete in the first Secondary Library Battle of the Books. Some started reading over the break and report enjoying the books so far. There are 20 books included in the Battle and some team members plan to read all 20, while other teams are dividing the titles amongst themselves so that each team member becomes the expert on four titles. That is a bit of a gamble, however; the more the merrier in attempting to answer questions about each book when the Battle itself occurs on March 1, 2017.
