vote champion with covers 2018

It is down to two books and only one can be crowned the champion. Which book are you going to vote for? Hatchet by Gary Paulsen or Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins? The champion will be announced during lunch on Tuesday, April 3rd.

 

 

 

 

As our March Madness in the Library continues, the heat increases. We started with the top 16 (Sweet 16) book checkouts of 2018 for both SoPrep and SoHi school libraries. At the beginning of the week we had voting for the Elite 8. One competition ‘game’ was tied after regulation time and had to go into overtime with five more votes to break the tie. The graphic novel, Amulet Escape from Lucien book 6 took the victory from Lockdown Escape from  Furnace book 1.

Will Amulet be victorious over City of Bones? That is up to you, so go to your email for the Final 4 voting link and vote now.

Elite 8

It’s that time again! March Madness time!

We’ll send you a link to vote for your favorite books every 3 days. We’ll start with 16, then go to 8, 4, and then the championship.

The timeline will follow that of the actual March Madness Basketball tournament.

It’s okay if you haven’t read the books, you root for teams you don’t always follow right?

The voting will take you less than a minute. We will start after Spring Break. Thank you for participating.

Every 3 days you will get the new link to the recent batch of winners until there is one champion left standing. The Champion will be announced on April 5th. Please take one minute to cast your vote when a new link comes out. For any questions come to the library!

Come to the display in the library and read the personal ads on covered books. By reading only the description in the  ad and not unwrapping the books, choose the one that you would like to take home on a date. You might be surprised with your choose, but give it a fair chance. If after that the book is totally not for you, return it and choose again. 20160210_110029[1]
