BoB is back!

The School Library Journal Battle of the Kids' Books has begun - or at least the website is up and running. The actual battle will roar to life on March 15th.

The brackets seem to have been chosen specifically in order to flummox me. For each battle in the first round, I've only read one of the books - with the notable exceptions of The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate v. Fire and Tales from Outer Suburbia v. When You Reach Me. Do I have time to catch up on the seven (!!) books I haven't read yet? I do not. Well, it'll make my own rooting easy for the first round. Hopefully some of those unread books will be weeded out in round 2.

First up - two nonfiction contenders, Charles and Emma v. Claudette Colvin, vye for Jim Murphy's vote on March 15.

  1. Yes, I'm finding my voting to be much simpler since I've only read half the books. =)
