What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books (BOB) is a reading club.  Students read books and come together usually in groups to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read.  The student competitions are similar to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competitions.  We meet in the library each Wednesday during all lunches.  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
