It is the eve of the Battle and all is quiet, more or less. Here’s what we’ve come across over the past week related to our contest. As always, let us know in the comments if we’ve missed yours and we’ll either add it in to this post or save it for next week’s edition.
- Kate Coombs was inspired by the BoB to do her own awards.
- Shoshana is contemplating about what may happen next week.
- Mr. H’s got his ducks—er, picks all in a row. Did he get any right? We aren’t saying.
- And Sondy’s got her first round picks here.
- The Children’s Room at the Takoma Park Maryland Library also is considering the upcoming event.
- Librarians in Central Texas are following along.
- Over at the Dalton School (where the two halves of the Battle Commander work), students in the Book Blogger Club (grades 5-7) have taken on the first bracket and some have already made their own decisions: c18jy gives her decision on Match 1, c17rg weighs in on Match 2 and c18gi weighs in on all of Round 1.
- We were delighted when our inspiration, The Tournament of Books’ Morning News, gave us a shout-out on their front page earlier this week.
