Battle of the Books Information
Are you up for a challenge? In order to participate in the Battle of the Books you must read 12 of the 15 Pinellas County selected books from the Sunshine State Young Reader Award Books (also called “Battle Books”) and pass the Reading Counts for those books. Then you qualify to take the District Battle test (usually 45 questions). From there participants will be chosen based upon their RC scores and the test scores. Questions are Jeopardy style, the answers are always the title of the book or the author of the book. A list of the books is provided below.

School Battle: TBD- usually March
Regional Battle: TBA (last year May 14th)
