    Philosophy
    ....The purpose of the Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the elementary and middle school levels. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills. The goal is to READ, not necessarily to win!

    History
    North Carolina's Battle of the Books first began in 1991 with the North Carolina Association of School Librarians assuming sponsorship. In 2000, NC schools became a region for competition. The first state competition of Battle of the Books (BOB) was held in 2001-2002.

    "In the case of good books, the point is not
    to see how many of them you can get
    through, but rather how many can get
    through to you"
    Mortimer Jerome Adler
