All of the participants were required to read a set of 8 books. There were an additional 10 books that the team had to read but they were able to divvy them up among the team members. This meant that each of the kids on C's team had to read at least 10 books. C made it through 10 (there they are in the picture!). Two of the kids on his team read all 18!
Once the four rounds were done, they tallied the scores and five teams moved on to the semifinals. Team Bookmasters was one of the five! We were all very excited! The semifinals was just one round of 12 questions, and Team Bookmasters moved on to the finals against just one other team!
This final round was another 12 questions, and Team Bookmasters only missed one, making them the 2014 Battle of the Books champions!! C and his team were so excited and so were my husband and I, who were so happy to be there to see the results! They even received trophies!
As a mom and a book blogger, I'm so proud of my son! I am so happy that he has found a love for books as I have. And I can't wait to see Team Bookmasters defend their title next year!
