Welcome, readers!

Battle of the Books is a competitive team of 6-8th grade students who read a list of 22 young adult books and compete against other schools by answering detailed questions. This club is for bibliophiles only! If you love reading and the spirit of competition, this is the perfect club for you!

We will meet EVERY Wednesday in the library, after school until 4:15.

Meeting Dates are: Wednesday afternoons, starting up again in the Fall of 2019.

To practice titles and authors, go HERE! (LINK WILL BE UPDATED SOON)

2018-19 BOB Team Preparing for Competition

So what is BoB?

After reading books on the list and memorizing the titles and authors, students prepare for competition by answering questions that begin with the phrase: "In which book...?" We compete against RMS at the county level, and the winner of that contest will advance to Regionals in the early Spring.

Caught you READING!

If you love reading and are interested in joining Battle of the Books at BMS, see Ms. Galloway TODAY!

Read, read, read books from the list, practice titles and authors as often as you can, and we'll see you at a meeting.
