Do you love to read?  Do you love to compete?  Does your math teacher have to tell you to put away your library book and get out your calculator?  Do you routinely run into walls because you are WWR--Walking While Reading?


    Battle of the Books (BOB) is an academic team that combines students' love of reading and competition.  The students selected for the team read a list of 22 books chosen by the North Carolina School Library Media Association.  We practice during and after school from October through March in preparation for the Harnett County BOB competition.  The competition team will consist of twelve members.  We create competition-style questions and use them during practice.  We have A LOT of fun, but we work really hard too!  We are on a mission to reclaim the county championship!
