Participants should arrive 15 minutes early to check in and receive table assignments. Meets last approximately one hour.
Each meet is divided into three rounds. Teams are asked five questions for each of the first two rounds, and three questions for the third. Correct answers are always the title of a book. Points are issued for correct answers(5 pts for the first two rounds; 10 pts. for the third). A bonus point is available in the first two rounds for knowledge of author’s last name. Questions are read twice after which the team has 20 seconds to answer.
Questions for all three rounds are formatted so that the answer will always be the title of the book. For example, “In which book does a spider save a pig?” Answer: Charlotte’s Web Author: White.
Librarians write approximately 25 questions per books. With 40 books on the reading list, meet questions will be selected from a collection of approximately 1000. Questions are recycled once all questions have been used.
