Thank you to everyone that participated in our 2018 Battle of the Books! We had 22 teams compete in the Battles this year. Thanks to the Grand Ledge Area District Library and the Friends of the Delta Township District Library for sponsoring this program.
Congratulations to the winning team, The Book Devourers, made up of Caden Hoskins, Cindy Hoskins, Emberlynn Lewis-Baldon, Allison Morgan, and Stephanie Morgan! The Book Devourers did not miss a single point during the entire competition!
Coming in second place, just two points behind, were Literary Ladies, made up of Angela Cummings, Adelaide Fitton, Katie Fitton, Naomi Fitton, and Rebecca Fitton. Third place went to Revenge of the Nerds, with Al Banks, Al Banks Jr., and Vigen Banks.
Rounding out the teams that made it to the Finals were: Book Bashers 4.0, MelCat Mice, and The Readdits. There were only 10 points separating the teams in the Finals so it was a very close match.

What is Battle of the Books?
It’s a fun trivia competition that tests your book knowledge. Teams of 4-5 participants read the selected Battle books in January and February. In March, teams compete in a series of battles to see which team knows the most about the books.
Who can participate?
Adults, teens, and kids (4th grade and up) are all welcome, and teams can be made up of participants of all ages. A team could be a family of four, grandparents and grandchildren, four teen classmates, five book club friends, or other combinations. The booklist includes books that are appropriate for young readers but will appeal to all ages. Families are encouraged to participate together; even children too young for the competition can be included in the fun by acting as team cheerleaders and reading books on similar topics and themes.
