What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books (B.O.B) is a reading club with ten new books to read every year.  In B.O.B, students are separated into groups to read the books together.  Near the end of the year all the teams compete to go to the finals for B.O.B.  If you have any questions or want aditional information, please see Mrs. Hadden in the library and remember, this reading club is open to anyone interested.
 
 
"In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through,
but rather how many can get through to you."
Mortimer Jerome Adler
