Battle of the Books T-Shirt…. Take 2

Hello Readers,

Well the T-shirt order fell through as we placed an order for 15 shirts and only received 10 confirmed orders, so that left ol’ Mr. Hutchinson on the hook for loads of extra shirts and he didn’t think he could swing $50 for extras.

So here comes round two… this time we only ordered 10 so we should be good to go, but it does increase the cost by about $4.  I hope we still can get the 10 people who were interested to reorder.  The link is below.

If you have any questions please let us know.  We will close this order next week, so order early so we can have our shirts by the end of the year.

Battle of the Books – March Madness… The Final Four

Hello Readers,

Well it’s done for me, both Fatal Fever and Airman have bowed out of the tournament, but we still have four books to choose from.

I think I see the winner from here….

Do you?

Here comes The Final Four…

You know a book with a girl in the title is going to win here.

I think Prisoner B might just take the whole thing, but I also picked Airman at the beginning, so what do I know.  Maybe we should ask Alan Gratz himself?

You have a week to vote and then on to the Finals!!!

March Madness

Hello Readers,

Boy has new content on this blog all but dried up?  Well we are back with our new Battle of the Books team and some reading news.

First Battle of the Books, you may wonder what that is all about?  We here in North Carolina participate in a reading competition called Battle of the Books.  Each year a list of books is chosen and students compete at local, district and state levels to answer questions about the list of books.  It was our first year competing and we had a great time at our district finals, even though we finished somewhere in the middle of the 23 teams that competed in our county finals.

Now our Battle team is interested in creating a March Madness competition using the current Battle List.  Take a look at our bracket…

Now how about you help us out and vote on the books you think should move on to the next round.






Please Vote… and tell your friends.

The second round will start soon.
