Battle of the Books

  • Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students. The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers.


    A typical "Battle" is a contest, like the College Bowl, in which students' teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book list. School teams compete and then advance to the District competition.
