Battle of the Books Novels chosen!

Friday was the meeting to pick the books for this year's Battle of the Books which will be held Wednesday, September 7th at Silver Lake College. Once again this battle is open to any students entering 7th through 12th grade!

Drumroll da da dum....

Battle of the Books 2011

Heart of a Samurai by Margi Preus
Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck
Fat Cat by Robin Brande
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John
Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451: The authorized adaptation by Ray Bradbury

All of the books are on order. I can personally vouch for Hex Hall and Ship Breaker. I loved both of them. I am also in the process of reading the others. I will keep you updated on my progress and revelations!

Click on the title of the book to place a hold on a copy so you can start reading today. Manitowoc has yet to win the Battle of the Books. This is OUR year ~ so pick up the books, read them and show some Manitowoc pride by participating in Battle of the Books 2011!

Don't forget to sign up at the reference desk or by emailing me, ~ Weekly meetings begin in August to prepare for the competition.
