Battle of the Books

What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the books (BOB) is a competition between the Diocesan school. Each year a list of books is chosen for students to read. Books are assigned to be read before meetings, and are read on the students own time. During meetings we will discuss the books. In March/April we will have a test that covers quotes from the books. Students will need to be able to state/write the title and author of the correct book. The top 4 scores will compete for each level, with one alternate. In May we all go to Christ the King for a competition. Everyone is welcome to come as long as we have enough parent drivers.

It is a lot of independent reading, and knowledge of the books. Most participants read the books assigned for each meeting and then reread them again before the competition in May.

There are three teams. A 2/3 grade team, a 4/5 grade team, and a 6-8 grade team.

Book lists, including previous years lists, can be found below.
