Battle of the Books is On!

We have just received our final copies of all of the books for the Battle. Thursday or Friday before Spring Break,  Div. 1, 2 and 3 will be meeting to get organized into teams, elect captains and co-captains and hand out the books. You should try and finish at least one book over the 2 week Spring Break period. Students will also be asked to make up a few questions for each of the books that they have read. You might also want to fill in the survey that I am creating for each of the books.

What are you reading over the holidays?

I am looking about for a good book to read over the holidays. Have any of you read anything that would be intriguing? I tend to like more realistic fiction. I santa-reading-clipartfinally read The Great Gilly Hopkins–even though I missed the actual Book Club meeting! It was a great read. You really had to have some empathy for Gilly in her search to belong. I would have enjoyed the discussion of this book as there would be so much to talk about.
