Battle of the Books

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

What Is The "Battle?"
A typical "Battle" is a full day tournament or game, like the College Bowl, in which students' teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book list. Students meet in the Library, they group into their teams, and the first round of the Battle begins. They play several rounds, each against a different team. At the end of the morning, points are totaled and the two teams with the most points are invited to a "Grand Battle" after lunch, with the other teams as their audience.

Reading Counts



1. Students select a book.
They can now generate reading lists based on their own interests and reading levels.

2. Quickly test your students’ comprehension.
After students read a book, they take a computer-generated quiz and receive instant feedback.

3. Track reading progress by school, class and student.
Instant data-driven reports help inform instruction. You know what progress students have made and when to intervene.
